VIDEO: Retired LAPD Detective Held Without Bail on Bank Robbery Charges

A retired Los Angeles police detective suspected of robbing five banks has been ordered held without bail.

Randolph Adair, 70, appeared Monday in federal court in Santa Ana, Calif. The FBI believes that Adair is the "Snowbird Bandit" - named for his age and white hair - who has robbed five banks around Orange County since March, CBS News reports.

Adair has been charged with one count of bank robbery and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Adair was arrested last Wednesday after several of his family members contacted investigators saying Adair fit the description of the robber.

Guess either pension wasn't large enough or he thought he was smart enough to get away with it. Sad.

What a waste. I am assuming that these robberies all happened after he retired. Now he is probably going to spend the rest of his life in prison. No matter how desperate he was it was not worth it.

Just part of his retirement plan. Free room and board. Free healthcare. It beats the crap out of an assisted living facility especially if you have no relatives left.
