Two suspects are still being sought by FBI and Santa Clarita Valley detectives for a brazen mid-day Stevenson Ranch bank robbery, officials said Thursday.

FBI officials, working with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigators, suspect the two men who robbed the California Bank and Trust on Sept. 14 are part of a crew known as the “Palm Tree Bandits,” said Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman for the Los Angeles field office.

  4. Ronald Lewis Ronald Lewis says:

    Is this two suspects or one? I know they said two suspects but one could be a get away.

  5. Davey Riley Davey Riley says:

    Still haven’t caught these losers??

  6. El Rey El Rey says:

    I think it’s funny people think the Sheriff’s here could stop bank robbers. Since I’ve lived here. They have never caught one. Even with a short drive to the freeway. My sister was in a robbery when WaMu was still around. It was the one off Lyons Ave never caught them either lol. SCV sheriff’s are much more effective ticket giving sheriff’s.

    • Which time they caught one of them years ago in an attic in can yon country

    • El Rey El Rey says:

      I was working the Valencia Town Center as security when we heard them open fire on two bank robbers. They unloaded 100 rounds. They hit nothing. Then arrested them. There was the b of a incident about 3 yes ago. They had enough time to rob then drive through traffic from Soledad til the 14 on ramp then they were gone. Also we had a lapd officer Commit suicide behind BJ’S Brewery company which took them 15 mins to respond to. I have a few others. None the less I respect my Sheriff’s department doesn’t mean I don’t know their record for how they handle things.

  7. luis madar says:

    If this is any indication how local Sheriff’s respond to crime no hope, here they clearly SAW the clown-costumed suspect hiding in nearby bushes but because the description the homeowner gave of the clown who approached him @6 a.m. with a knife in clown costume was a little taller and had on a full costume (gee, this clown still with his mask HIDING IN BUSHES NEARBY couldn’t have just ditched the costumer, right?) they leave the clown in the bushes and arrest the reporting homeowner for firing a gun. And raided his house because he sounded crazy then “found drugs” == if these bank robbers don a clown mask and hide in the bushes sounds like they’ll get a free pass.
    — This clown story sounds like a joke to most commenters in that other paper but really it was like sending in the clown to (not) find a crazy clown — c’mon local Sheriffs, you HAVE TO DO BETTER.
