Bank robber whose getaway vehicle was electric scooter gets five years prison


A repeat offender who robbed a Chula Vista bank last fall and fled the scene on an electric scooter was sentenced Monday to
nearly five years in federal prison.

Mario Daniel Haro, 32, a U.S. citizen who was living in Rosarito, Mexico, pleaded guilty earlier this year to robbing the Chase bank Olympic Parkway just east of state Route 125 on Oct. 14, 2019.

Haro was sentenced Monday to 57 months in prison. He was also previously convicted in 2008 for robbing a Chula Vista
bank, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“Unfortunately this defendant failed to take advantage of his second chance and committed an additional violent crime,’’ said U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer. “As this case demonstrates, individuals who reoffend will be investigated, arrested and convicted and usually the sentence will be longer. Hopefully this time the defendant learned a lesson.”

Prosecutors said Haro went into the bank about 3 p.m. Oct. 14, and gave a bank teller a note that read, “I have a GUN! Give me all money. NO INK Packages.”

He made off with about $1,000 in cash, then fled on a Lime electric scooter, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
