Black Man Disguised as Elderly White Man Allegedly Robs 11 NorCal Banks

CBS San Francisco, June 2, 2012

Authorities say an African American bank robber is in custody after disguising himself as an elderly white man and holding up several banks across Northern California.

San Leandro Police Lt. Jeff Tudor says 34-year-old Deron Williams apparently robbed 11 banks while wearing a “sophisticated full-face mask giving him the appearance of an elderly white male.”

Alameda County prosecutors have charged Williams with several counts of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, vehicle theft and weapons violations. {snip}

Tudor says police were able to implicate Williams off of DNA evidence following a robbery at a Bank of the West branch in San Leandro in October.
