On Monday, we told you about an FBI alert pertaining to the so-called Portfolio Bandit, the latest scofflaw to wind up with a Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force-approved nickname, following in the footsteps of such luminaries as the H1N1 Bandit, the Tom Thumb Bandit and the Band-Aid Bandit.
Henceforth, though, Mr. Portfolio will be known as Eric R. Dodd, 28. The feds believe he was responsible for thirteen bank robberies in recent months. He was arrested at an Adams County apartment yesterday prior to checking out his new accommodations at Denver City Jail.
Which creates an opening for a new nicknamed bandit. Someone could be applying for the position right now...
