Alleged ‘Rabid Fan Bandit’ pleads not guilty

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — A man accused in 16 bank robberies in March and April in the Seattle-Tacoma area pleaded not guilty Thursday in King County Superior Court in Kent.

KIRO reports 31-year-old Robert Cal Adams remains jailed with bail set at $750,000.

He’s accused of eight robberies as the “Rabid Fan Bandit” who was named for wearing caps with sports logos.

Adams and two other men are also accused of coaching three juveniles in eight more “Buddy Bandit” robberies.

Many of the banks that were hit were inside groceries or other larger stores. One of the Rabid Fan Bandit robberies was in Spokane.

Adams was identified by fingerprints and arrested after an April 21 holdup in Des Moines.
