PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man has been indicted for allegedly robbing or trying to rob four banks around Arizona since last summer.
The FBI on Wednesday said a federal grand jury in Phoenix returned a five-count indictment against Alan Jeffery Farber for armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and use of a firearm in a crime of violence.
The 48-year-old Farber is suspected of being the so-called "Dynomite Bandit."
FBI officials say the "Dynomite Bandit" was at a Chase Bank in Peoria on July 3, a Wells Fargo Bank in Anthem on Dec. 21, another Chase branch in Scottsdale on Jan. 2 and a Bank of the West branch in Black Canyon City on Jan. 4.
The FBI gave the robber the misspelled "Dynomite" nickname because the explosive devices he used were fake.
