Even as a child of the 90’s in LA, I had never known that Los Angeles was once the bank robbery capital of the world. In 1992, there was a heist every 45 minutes!

The main reason for that, among others, is freeways! We’re talking about guys who would rob multiple banks in one day and one particular bandit got in 64 robberies before being caught.

Join me in this episode with Peter Houlahan as he shares the stories of some of the most significant bank robberies in LA during the 80’s and 90’s!
