No Bail Hold for Parolee "Stun Gun Bandit" arrested in Los Angeles, from Bail Bondsman in Los Angeles

A 68-year-old paroled bank robber dubbed the "stun gun bandit" has been arrested after allegedly robbing the bank where he had an account, Los Angeles police said today.

Lester Robert Evans, 68, was arrested after LAPD investigators said they found evidence in his skid row apartment that helped tie him to a December boutique robbery. In that crime, Evans was captured on video shocking the young clerk with a stun gun, said LAPD Lt. Paul Vernon.

“We had a feeling this guy would surface eventually,” Vernon said. “It just turns out he decided to rob a bank where he had his own account.”

Police were called Tuesday to the Bank of the West branch at 2nd and San Pedro streets in downtown L.A. after it was robbed by “a white man in his 60s,” authorities said. Within minutes, officers had come up with the name of Evans, a local man who was on parole for bank robbery.

Detectives verified Evans was on parole and went to his apartment in the 400 block of East 7th Street on skid row. Detectives searched the apartment and seized evidence that linked the parolee to the bank robbery, as well as the boutique robbery, police said. Evans was booked for the bank robbery and held without bail for a parole violation.

Evans shows a $70,000 Dolllar bail but because he's on Parole there is a mandatory hold placed on him.
We will update the story as it changes relating to bail.
