Police arrest man suspected of being serial bank robber 'The Bandage Bandit'

A bank robbery suspect nicknamed "The Bandage Bandit" has been arrested in Columbia, Maryland, according to an FBI spokesperson.

The man earned the title in October 2015, during the first reported robbery, when surveillance video captured him with bandages that covered a portion of his face.

27-year-old Carlo Mckenzie Languerre was arrested on Friday, according to authorities. Languerre is suspected of robbing nine Maryland banks since October. He's also suspected of other bank robberies in Carroll, Frederick, Harford and Howard counties, police said.
