What an idiot. You'd think he'd be smart enough to mix things up a little bit in each robbery, rather than using a bike to escape each time.

Doesn't selling marijuana finance growing marijuana?

Good job SCPD!

White guys rob banks..its a fact! The only way a AnchorBanger would rob a bank would be if he had 10 Homies to help him, then the dummies would probably throw rocks at the tellers, expecially the pregnant ones...bet that house will be up for sale in Ketchum, Idaho..high dollar area..but to cold to grow pot outside in the winter..glad they got this criminal before someone got hurt..Johnny at the Harbor, Checkin the grow light.

..."Maxon, who also has a home in Ketchum, Idaho, has a previous conviction for armed robbery in Santa Cruz County in 1992, Clark said."

Good to hear another uplifting story of yet another of Santa Cruz's finest upstanding and productive long term members of the community!

according to CNN the bike bandit was napped in the Sacramento area and his name is Hubert Rotteveel.

So which is it? Rotteveel or Maxon? Also, how old are these plants? Unless they were planted very recently wouldn't he have had the lights already?

Looks like the geniuses who work at CNN lifted the Sentinel's picture for a Sacramento bike bandit story. Different guy.

this just shows how drug abusers and dealers will diversify their criminal activities into more dangerous stunts. gee...he was probably high as a kite every robbery.

this same problem happens at the Mission Gardens Apartments on 90 Grandview Street where Carl Reimer was murdered. we have had all sorts of druggies who diversify their criminal activities. gee...they were all high as kites. predictable consequences of serious drug crimes.

What are you trying to say? That maybe it was'nt "a bike and skateboard" that Carl and his younger friend went back to retrieve at Grandview Park that night? I have always thought something did not add up. Why would you have to stash a bike and skateboard in a park? I think they stashed something else they did not want found becuase it was illegal. When they went back to get it, someone from a rival gang said "this is ours now." if you are gonna keep bringing Grandview up like this expect some people like me to ask questions like this...

I remember in the 70's, a bank robber was caught in my back yard. My wife and I lived in Santa Cruz Gardens. Bank Robbers don't change their methods, and because of that, they get caught. Oh the bank Robber caught on our property, The Commuter Bank Robber.
lot of questions
