'Bad Breath Bandit' on the loose in California

SUMMARY:  The Federal Bureau of Investigation has dubbed a bank robber the "Bad Breath Bandit" after robbing from three banks in northern California.

A bank robber dubbed the "Bad Breath Bandit" is being tracked down after robbing three banks in northern California over the last six months. The man always wears a disposable paper face mask with yellow straps to conceal his identity, hence his halitosis moniker.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been getting creative with the criminal's nicknames, considering between the "Surgical Mask Bandit," the "SARS Bandit" or the "I Hate Smog Bandit," but the FBI landed on "Bad Breath Bandit." No one has asked the bank tellers how rancid the man's exhalations were, and it is uncertain whether the suspect actually suffers from bad breath.

While the man, who stands about 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 230 pounds, has only hit banks in northern California, criminal oral odors can strike anyone, anywhere. The embarrassing health condition affects about 30 percent of people around the globe, originating from a group of anaerobic, sulfur-producing bacteria that breed beneath the surface of the tongue as well as the throat and tonsil area.  

The FBI is not on the lookout for bad breath, just the suspect. On Nov. 13, the FBI says the armed Bad Breath Bandit entered the Tri Counties Bank in Durham and demanded cash from the teller. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the man left the bank. On Sept. 25, the man stole from the Umpqua Bank. In June, he robbed a Tri Counties Bank in Nevada City wearing a San Francisco Giants hat, a medical mask and dark sunglasses. No one was injured in the crimes. 

The FBI is encouraging anyone with information about this case to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
