A man nicknamed the “Black & White Sneaker Bandit” was recently seen on camera robbing at least eight banks in central and northern Orange County, according to federal investigators.
The Los Angeles FBI released footage of the man taken from bank security cameras in Fullerton, Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa.
The photos show the man dressed in different clothes for each robbery, except for his shoes: black trainers with white soles.

The FBI did not respond to a request for comment on the thefts on Sunday. It is not known when they happened or if the alleged thief got away with money.
It is also unclear whether the alleged thief was armed during any of the incidents.
However, the FBI asked the public for help in identifying the man. They asked anyone with information to call (310) 477-6565.
The new series of robberies comes after the FBI arrested the “green spat bandit”, a man accused of robbing four banks in Northern Orange County in January. The man was given the nickname after he was spotted on camera wearing a green face covering in each of the flights.
