Apparently, he isn't the worst security guard since the Rolling Stones ingeniously opted to hire the Hell's Angels to work Altamont. He's just a crook.

It turns out a man who dresses like a security guard is providing anything but at banks in both Alameda and San Francisco. Alameda police say the man who robbed a Wells Fargo there on Friday is also suspected of ripping off two San Francisco banks: The Wells Fargo at 557 Castro on Nov. 5 and the Chase at 1811 19th Ave. on Nov. 13.

Following the Alameda robbery, the faux guard was seen leaving the scene with an accomplice in a 1987 four-door Chevrolet Impala with a California license plates.

The suspect is described as a black man, aged
45 to 50, standing 6-feet-tall and weighing about 180 pounds.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
