It appears that the five-day crime spree guy who was caught at Disneyland last week has been on a much longer track record than just five days. Sleuth blogger David Markland dug up Anthony Hislar's past finding that he was arrested in 2001 for a bank robbery one month after being suspected of killing two teens in a drunk driving accident. In 2005, he was arrested after a car chase that zipped through the campus of UC Santa Barbara. This might have just been his third strike. Slap. Correction: Hislar's brother was wanted for the killing of the two teens.
