Alleged 'Band-Aid Bandit' Back in Custody; Accused of Robbing Credit Unit While on the Run
Cody Jensen, 32, of West Haven, Utah, was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department, after being on the run for three weeks.
Jensen surrendered to authorities in California on February 9, 2022. He appeared in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles today, February 10, 2022, and was remanded to federal custody. He waived removal and will be brought back to Utah to face charges.
Jensen was on pre-trial release on federal bank robbery charges in the District of Utah when he cut off his ankle monitor and fled on January 19, 2022.
A federal indictment in the District of Nevada alleges that on January 26, 2022, while a fugitive, Jensen robbed the America First Credit Union at 10608 South Eastern Avenue #D in Henderson, Nevada.
That indictment also charges Jensen with additional robberies in Nevada:
- September 30, 2020: America First Credit Union at 10608 South Eastern Avenue #D in Henderson
- November 18, 2020: U.S. Bank at 5564 Camino Al Norte, North Las Vegas
Jensen was initially arrested on August 19, 2021, and awaiting trial for the following Utah robberies:
- December 9, 2019: Cyprus Credit Union inside the Walmart Supercenter at 11328 South Jordan Gateway in South Jordan.

- August 27, 2020: America First Credit Union inside Bowman’s Market at 325 North Main Street in Kaysville.
During the investigation in Utah, the FBI nicknamed the unidentified serial robber as the “Band-Aid Bandit” because he had been observed wearing Band-Aids on his fingers during the robberies.
The FBI would like to thank the FBI Las Vegas Field Office, the Los Angeles Police Department, and the FBI Los Angeles Field Office for their assistance in Jensen’s recent arrest.
The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
