Police have nabbed a serial robber known as the "Ho-Hum Bandit". Officers grabbed Adam Lynch, 34, in Denver according to the Los Angeles Times.

Lynch is from Corte Madera. He is accused of robbing banks in San Diego, Corona del Mar, Laguna Beach and Cathedral City in Southern California before moving on to Washington, Wyoming and Colorado. That's where he was caught.

Police dubbed Lynch the "Ho-hum Bandit" because of his demeanor during robberies and his seeming disregard for having his picture taken.

The FBI says Lynch struck at least a dozen banks in the past five months.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense and it increases if a dangerous weapon is used.
