Also, it turns out this wasn’t his first brush with the law.

Via the New York Daily News:

A homeless man shot dead by Los Angeles cops was a French crook who once knocked off a bank to finance his Hollywood dreams, according to a report.

Charley Saturmin Robinet, 39, was busted in 2000 for the violent holdup of a Wells Fargo branch, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Robinet grew impatient and smashed the teller in the face with a gun, opening a gash that required four stitches, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

Here’s his mugshot:

The Los Angeles Times quotes sources saying Robinet was a “French national.” Here is a list of crimes that make an immigrant deportable. Why was he still in our country?

Update via FRANCE 24:

Robinet “acknowledged being an illegal immigrant.”
