Burglar Tries To Escape With A Flash, But Deputies Get Bat-Signal First

khts_crimeHoly Crime Wave, Batman!

The guys in the real deputy uniforms caught a bad guy in a fake uniform driving a stolen getaway car Wednesday night at Magic Mountain.


Around 8 p.m., deputies from the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s station responded to a burglar alarm at the Magic Mountain sheriff’s substation near the front of the amusement park, and found a window smashed and the back door open.

While they were conducting their investigation, they saw a man dressed in a Magic Mountain Security uniform attempting to leave the area in a Six Flags maintenance truck. The deputies stopped him to ask him about the break-in and quickly discovered he was the suspect they were looking for.

Carl Banks, 27, told deputies he had stolen the uniform and the Six Flags vehicle. Deputies also learned that costumes for Batman and The Flash had been taken earlier in the day when someone broke into the park’s wardrobe department. Those costumes were found in Banks’ possession.

Banks is being held at the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station in lieu of $25,000 bail. He faces felony charges of burglary and grand theft and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
