Police in Orange County are on the hunt for a man nicknamed the “Snowbird Bandit”.

Authorities believe the man may be responsible for as many as 4 bank robberies in Orange County with the most recent occurring Monday at U.S. Bank in Ladera Ranch.

In that robbery, police say the man handed the teller a note, showed what appeared to be a gun tucked in his waistband, took the money and walked left.
