How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Where Have All of the Bank Robbers Gone in California? State Sees Huge Reduction Since 1990s

California may no longer be the nation’s bank robbery capital.

The Latin Post reports that the FBI’s L.A. office, which includes seven counties, is handling far fewer bank robbery cases than in the past.

Robberies peaked in the early 1990s, with as many as 28 bank robberies a day in the counties of  Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange County, Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo.

That has dropped to 212 robberies a year – or fewer than one a day.

FBI officials said they were surprised.

“I was flabbergasted when we broke 400. Then we broke 300,” FBI Special Agent Stephen May, who works as the bureau’s bank robbery coordinator for the region, said.
