Three banks in Anaheim were held up in 30 minutes on Wednesday by a suspect being called the "fuzzy-face bandit". According to authorities, the bandit got away with cash from only one of the locations.The heisting began about 10:45 a.m. at the at 1135 N. State College Blvd. Wells Fargo branch, according to the FBI, reports the Daily Breeze. The suspect handed a note to the teller demanding money and saying he had a gun. When the teller did not deliver fast enough, the robber stormed out and went next door to Bank of America. They weren't fast enough there either. Anyone who's ever been into a Wells Fargo or Bank of America at that hour could have told him that.

At 11:17 a.m. the suspect then entered a Chase bank branch at 5791 E. Santa Ana Canyon Road and successfully scored an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the FBI. The suspect is described as a late 20s/early 30s, light-skinned Latino man, approximately 5-foot-7, with a "husky build." He was seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark hat or cap.
