bicyclist robs bank in Portola Valley?

This guy look familiar to anyone?



He is wanted by the FBI for robbing a bank in Portola Valley on Monday morning, apparently while wearing a high visibility bicycling jacket and black tights.

Funny.. I saw the SMco Sheriff responding to this call while driving to work... He came flying down 280SB and exited Alpine, at around 9:20am that day. I was actually worried it was a cycling accident, since there isn't much going on around Portola Valley (and it was a nice day).

Well to be fair there isn't much for them to do there. They literally fall a sleep behind the wheel there...

San Mateo county police were too busy waiting for cyclists not to stop at stop signs to care about a bank robbery.

Did the robber leave the scene in a car or on a bike?
