SAN MATEO (CBS SF) — A man authorities call the “Big Man Bandit” is now behind bars after being taken into custody by San Mateo police over the weekend.
300-pound serial bank robbery suspect 50-year-old Gregory Alan Vaughan of Daly City hit five banks — including locations in San Jose and San mateo — in the month of March alone.
The FBI released photos and video of the suspect last week.
Police arrested Vaughn on Saturday outside the Jockey Club, a San Mateo satellite betting facility.
A San Mateo police officer spotted a gold Cadillac that matched the description of Vaughn’s getaway vehicle and called for backup.
He was taken into custody without incident.
