The so-called "Doom and Gloom" bandit has struck again. On Tuesday, he showed up at the Santa Barbara Bank and Trust in Westlake Village claiming to be a former employee who was owed money. He left with the cash, crying.

The "Doom and Gloom" bandit is also suspected of robbing a bank in Santa Maria last Friday.

The FBI says the suspect tells bank tellers he has an illness that is spreading through his body and then threatens to kill the tellers.
