CHICAGO (AP) — The FBI says a man dubbed the "Ray Bandit" for the distinctive sunglasses he allegedly wore during 17 bank robberies in seven states is in custody in Chicago.
Authorities say Jeremy Evans of Carol Stream was arrested last week in a car matching the description of one used during a holdup moments earlier of a bank in Elgin.
The FBI says Evans is believed to have absconded with more than $75,000 from 17 banks since last summer in Illinois, California, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Virginia.
That robber has been nicknamed the "Ray Bandit" because he wore Ray-Ban sunglasses during the holdups.
Evans is charged with one count of bank robbery and is jailed without bond.
His attorney, Donna Hickstein-Foley, hasn't returned a message seeking comment Tuesday.
