Roland Police said the “Bucket List Bandit” has been arrested during a traffic stop.

Michael Brewster, 54, is suspected in 10 bank robberies in nine states in the last three months.

The FBI nicknamed Brewster the “Bucket List Bandit” after he told bank tellers he only had four months to live.

Brewster was arrested Thursday driving a vehicle reported stolen in Florida with a fictitious Utah license plate, police said.

Brewster is wanted on a federal warrant for the Sept. 10 robbery of the Huntington National Bank in Erie, Penn.

Brewster is also suspected of robbing banks in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, North Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois and Missouri.
