The so-called "Snowboarder Bandit" has struck again, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

The robbery occurred at a Chase bank in the 30,000 block of Crown Valley Parkway in Laguna Niguel. Authorities said Tuesday's robbery is the eighth hold-up connected to the "Snowboarder Bandit." The suspect gets that nickname because he often wears a knit hat and other ski clothes to help disguise himself.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 25 years old, 6 feet tall and about 165 pounds.
