On top of that news was federal prosecutors also proposing to have new evidence that could send him away for a long time. It includes bank surveillance photos from two more alleged robberies in Nevada and California. Prosecutors are also asking to use clothing found in Babudar’s car when he was arrested in California as evidence.
Babudar is charged with one count of bank theft and one count of transporting stolen property across state lines.
Babudar was arrested in California last month for bank theft and transporting stolen property across state lines after alleged robberies across the Midwest.
After initial charges of a bank robbery in Oklahoma, he was released on bond in February 2023 and would proceed to remove his ankle monitor and fled prosecution for four months until authorities located him in Sacramento, California. At that time, they suspect that he had robbed more banks.
Prosecutors attempted to enter evidence that includes two bank surveillance photos from a robbery at Heritage Bank in Nevada back in June as well as two bank surveillance photos from a robbery at a U.S. Bank branch in El Dorado Hills, California, on July 3, 2023.
He also allegedly purchased and redeemed more than $1 million in chips from various casinos in Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois between April and December 2022.
New evidence requests include photos that the prosecution alleges tie Babudar to the robberies in Nevada and California.
