A man dubbed as the "Beanie Bandit" suspected of robbing six banks in the past two months throughout the South Bay was arrested Friday, Campbell police said.
Police say a tip from a KTVU viewer led them to 43-year-old Tony Piovesan of Campbell, who was identified as the man suspected of robbing six banks in Campbell, Los Gatos, San Jose and Sunnyvale over the past two months, police said.
He was found and arrested Friday in Campbell, where police said they allegedly found evidence connecting Piovesan to all six robberies throughout Santa Clara County.
Footage from many of the bank robberies captured the suspect wearing a beanie on his head, according to police.
Investigators said the so-called "beanie" bandit did not display a weapon; he just gave tellers a note.
Police from the four cities where the robberies occurred worked together on the case, according to Campbell police.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
