An accused bank robber awaiting trial for allegedly holding up a Torrey Highlands bank has been ordered to stand trial in the robbery of eight other banks, including one in La Jolla.

Six witnesses, mostly bank tellers, testified June 4 in the preliminary hearing of Victor Lamar Moore, 32, for robberies that occurred in 2012 and 2013. He is accused of holding up the Wells Fargo branch bank on La Jolla Village Drive on Aug. 24, 2012 and seven others, court records say.

He faces a June 16 trial date in San Diego Superior Court for the Jan. 4 robbery of the U.S. Bank at 7895 Highland Village Place and and the Jan. 3 attempted robbery at another U.S. Bank in El Cajon. Although Judge Eugenia Eyherabide set a trial date of July 24 for the other hold-ups, the cases may be consolidated for a later trial date.

Moore has pleaded not guilty and remains in jail on $250,000 bail.
