Reynolds, who died Wednesday, served as mayor of Orange from 1962 to 1964 and was on the City Council from 1958 to 1966.

Bail was denied Monday for a man believed to be the final suspect in a group blamed for a series of violent, takeover-style bank holdups in Orange and Los Angeles counties, authorities said. Liston Oswanio David, 34, of Los Angeles had eluded police since a 1999 bank robbery in Huntington Beach, according to the FBI. Agents said David was a member of a group known as the Head Hunter Bandits, an aggressive team thought to have robbed 16 banks.
