Robbery, Pursuit Suspect Allegedly 'Don't Even' Bandit

Dwight McGarrah, 29, suffered injuries in the crash and was taken to an area hospital for treatment, where he was placed under hospital arrest until he can be medically cleared for booking.

A man suspected of robbing a Wells Fargo bank in La Verne, then leading cops on a chase into Monrovia, where the vehicle he was in crashed into a cement truck, was identified Saturday as the so-called "Don't Even" bandit.

Dwight McGarrah, 29, suffered injuries in the crash and was taken to an area hospital for treatment, where he was placed under hospital arrest until he can be medically cleared for booking, La Verne police Sgt. Chris Fenner told Patch.

He will be booked on suspicion of robbery and felony evading, Fenner told Patch.

The suspect is set for arraignment at the Pomona Courthouse Tuesday, the sergeant said.

According to a report on Los Angeles CBSlocal.com, the FBI has identified McGarrah as someone they dubbed the "Don't Even" bandit, because he used those words in some of his threats to bank clerks.

Fenner told Patch that McGarrah is suspected of 10 other bank heists in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.
