Elk Grove Bank Robber Arrested in L.A.

LOS ANGELES—The man suspected of robbing an Elk Grove bank in late May was arrested in Los Angeles on Friday, June 5.

Darius Gilbert, 48, also known as the “Clean Cut Bandit” because of his appearance, was arrested early Friday morning without incident at a Sunset Boulevard hotel in Los Angeles. In many of the robberies, he wore short-sleeved polo shirts and aviator sunglasses.

Elk Grove Police said Gilbert was suspected of robbing the Chase Bank at 7427 Laguna Boulevard on May 26. He is believed to be linked to approximately eight other bank robberies in San Francisco, San Rafael and Antioch.

While no weapon was shown during the Elk Grove robbery in May, he did insinuate he had a weapon. Witnesses reported that during his other heists, Gilbert brandished a knife at some of the robberies, and handguns at others.

Gilbert was most recently tied to a bank robbery at the Bank of Marin in San Rafael on June 2. An arrest warrant was issued by the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

The arrest was the result of an investigation by FBI offices in San Francisco and Sacramento, as well as officers in San Francisco, Antioch, Elk Grove and San Rafael.
