Suspects who robbed two Calabasas banks wanted by FBI

"County-Line Bandits" believed to be armed

CALABASAS, Calif. - The FBI and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are searching for a group of armed bank robbers who robbed two Calabasas banks in the last four months.

The group has been dubbed the "County-Line Bandits" due to their crimes having taken place near the border of Los Angeles County and Ventura County.

On February 24, the suspects committed a "violent takeover" robbery at a Bank of America branch located at 23631 Calabasas Road.

Victims inside the bank were ordered to the ground while suspects brandished their weapons.

Witnesses described the suspects’ getaway vehicle as a gold or tan Chevrolet Suburban with tinted windows.

Bank of America is offering a reward of up to $10,000 in exchange for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

The "County-Line Bandits" have also been linked to a similar-style robbery that occurred at a Chase Bank branch located at 23703 Calabasas Road on December 15, 2016.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to contact the FBI at (888) 226-8443.

The suspects should be avoided as they are considered armed and dangerous.
