|Police believe Hubert Rotteveel was also responsible for this robbery at a Santa Cruz bank|
But at least he showed enough self-respect to bring a gun. He waved it around, got his money, and pedaled away.
An hour later, a man fitting the same description robbed the First Northern Bank in West Sacramento. Again he took off on his bike, multitasking with exercise and armed felonies at the same time.
But as he was riding away, he passed a patrol car. Just then, the dye pack in his loot exploded -- right in front of the officer.
The cop naturally deduced that exploding dye packs are not a routine part of bike riding. Rotteveel was quickly arrested.
He's now being held on a $200,000 bond. But there's a good chance he could get jacked more. Rotteveel's suspected in a series of armed robberies in Northern California, including one just two days before his arrest.
