A man dubbed the "Bearded Bandit" by authorities was jailed Wed night after a sharp-eyed citizen called Brentwood police when they recognized him buying razors to shave his beard, a Concord police spokesman said.

The suspect is sitting in Concord Jail after leading Brentwood police on a pursuit, remarked Corporal Christopher Blakely. He was wanted for at least eleven bank robberies throughout Northern California.

A CVS shopper saw the hairy-faced suspect shopping for razors, Blakely said. The citizen called police and the suspect led them on a chase throughout the city.
