He wasn't wearing a helmet. Also, the security picture should have been taken from the drive side.

Cops are loath to stop cyclists who are speeding or running stop signs. Maybe that attitude extends to robbing banks. You know, as long as they're not doing something serious like holding up car traffic.

Used to live in that neighbourhood. There was a period of about two years a ways back where there was a bank robbery a month between there and Albuquerque.

He would have gotten away faster on a road bike.

If an e-bike, even faster... if using a cell phone at the time, he could've gotten away with murder too....

An alert detective was able to track him down by following him on Strava.
