FBI: Suspected 'Ray Bandit' arrested near Chicago
ST. LOUIS (AP) — An overweight man dubbed the "Ray Bandit" for the distinctive Ray-Ban sunglasses authorities say he wore during a string of 17 bank robberies in seven states has been captured and jailed without bond, the FBI said.
Jeremy Evans, 30, of Carol Stream, Ill., was arrested Jan. 15 in a car matching the description of one used during a holdup moments earlier at a bank in Elgin, near Chicago. Elgin police found $4,812 taken from the bank and a BB gun inside the Toyota Camry, FBI Special Agent Anthony Reeves wrote in an affidavit.
Evans has been charged in Chicago with one federal count of bank robbery and ordered held by U.S. marshals pending a detention hearing Wednesday. He is suspected in robberies from Virginia to California, and additional charges are expected as FBI agents track Evans' recent travels and sort through unsolved bank heists, said Robert Ramsey, a supervisory special agent with the FBI office in Indianapolis.
