Alleged 'Naughty' Bandit Surrenders

October 24, 2003|From a Times Staff Writer

A 19-year-old woman dubbed "the naughty girl bandit" after she allegedly robbed at least five banks in Southern California has surrendered to federal authorities, police said.

Candice Dionne Gist of Carson had been sought by police since banks in Fullerton, Cerritos and Chino Hills were robbed on Aug. 20, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Bosley. Gist is also suspected of robbing banks in Westminster and Anaheim, she said.

The robber got the nickname because of a shirt with the word "naughty" across the front worn during the alleged robberies.
