101 Bandit Pleads Guilty In San Francisco

by The Editors on August 25, 2008

Eli Cheney, 65, is a chauffeur driver from Napa, California, but last year between June and December he robbed 20 banks from Carlsbad to Fairfield and earned the nickname the 101 Bandit. And today he plead guilty.

Cheney is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 20 before U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel in San Francisco. Each count of bank robbery carries a potential sentence of up to 20 years and a fine of $250,000.

When he robbed the Calfornia Bank and Trust on Carlsbad Village drive we called him the Old Coger Robber. Looks like he could be out by the time he’s 75.
