Bank robber makes getaway on electric scooter, witnesses tell police
The city of Chula Vista officially launched Lime electric scooters on Sunday.
Just one day later, police say a bank robber used one of the scooters to make his getaway.
The FBI said a male suspect robbed a Chase Bank branch in Chula Vista on Oct. 14. Witnesses told police the man escaped on a Lime scooter.
The suspect is also wanted by the FBI in connection with the robbery of a U.S. Bank branch in south San Diego in early October.
Police said in both cases the suspect flashed a gun and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was hurt during either robbery.
The suspect was last seen wearing a fedora, dark sunglasses and a scarf around his neck.
