Electric bike bandit makes off with $8,000 from Newport Beach bank

Police are looking for a bank robber who rode away from a bank heist on an electric bike with $8,000 in Newport Beach on Thursday.

The suspect, who was wearing sunglasses, a dark beanie and black jacket, walked into the OneWest Bank at 3700 E. Coast Highway in Corona del Mar about 3:50 p.m. Police said he brandished a black semiautomatic handgun as he demanded money from the teller.

After the teller handed over the cash, the man fled on a black electric bicycle...

Maybe he needed to do this to pay for his ebike ;)
