Pink scrubs, Darth Vader mask, hatchet-wielding bank robbery suspect arrested - Rowland Heights

A man wearing pink hospital scrubs, a Darth Vader mask, black wig, gloves, and wielding a hatchet was arrested by deputies about three hours after robbing a bank inside a Rowland Heights grocery store Thursday.

At about 11:00AM on December 30th, a robber entered the Bank of America located inside an Albertson's grocery store on the 19000 block of Colima Road. An undisclosed amount of money was stolen. After robbing the bank, he was seen quickly leaving the store wearing the unusual disguise and weapon.

Walnut Sheriff's Station detectives of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and investigators with the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately followed up on several leads.

The investigation led to the identification of the suspect as Gregory Sanchez, male Hispanic, 46, a resident of West Covina.
The suspect was arrested by Walnut Sheriff's Station detectives at about 2:00PM the same day, while working as a Courtesy Clerk at the same Albertson's grocery store.

Bail is set at $100,000.00.

"Bank robbery is a very serious matter and very frightening to victims and witnesses. We are glad no one was hurt and that we have a suspect in custody," said Lt. John Saleeby, Walnut Sheriff's Station, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
