You do realize that this the same man who robbed the bank in the other story, right? The Honda was apparently stolen from Redwood City.

Joe, the other story says he jumped into the "trunk" of a white Pontiac.

Yep, looks like he dumped the stolen Honda and made his way to another car. Seemed pretty well planned. I can't imagine they will be happy with only one bank. Glad nobody got hurt, but I hope the cops catch 'em soon.

Thanks for helping to tie it in! Wild times in ol' Menlo. I hope they catch him - dangerous, bad behavior.
