ORANGE — A redheaded man with a baseball cap has walked into the El Dorado Bank on Chapman Avenue with a handgun and walked out with a bag of cash three times. Now, police are asking for the public's help before the robber strikes on a fourth occasion.
The man who held up the bank at 2730 E. Chapman Ave. in November 1995, April 1996 and then again last week was one of two described Thursday by Orange police investigators seeking leads in unrelated robberies.
The two robbers have struck a combined eight times in the city, making off with undisclosed amounts of cash, according to Orange Police Lt. Ed Tunstall.
The first robber has concentrated on the El Dorado Bank, but may be responsible for bank robberies in other cities, Tunstall said. He is described as a white man, 35 to 40 years old, from 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds. He has reddish-brown hair, a mustache and full beard, and wears a baseball cap and sunglasses.
