He was also connected to robbing the same U.S. Bank at East 14th Street on Jan. 3 and a Bank of America at 1925 Marina Boulevard on Jan. 14, according to police.

"This year we have experienced an unprecedented amount of bank robberies. Our staff has successfully closed five out of the six bank robberies that have been committed this year," Lt. Randall Brandt said in a statement. "This would not have been possible without the assistance of our community and surrounding agencies," he said.

I agree with Ken in this instance. Ken cites the huge amount recidivism here in California. Do the time, and don't come back! Use this time to build a support so he doesn't have to repeat his behavior because he has no other course.
