Banks, known as the Second-Hand Bandit, was convicted last week of two bank robberies and two attempted robberies where he made off with a nearly $600,000, $500,000 of which is still unaccounted for. Conley was convicted of robbing nearly $4,000 from a bank last year. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
