RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A man known to the FBI as the "No Frills Bandit" has been arrested.

"FBI Richmond can confirm that Mr. Russell Tyrone Carter is in custody for two of the robberies represented as done by the 'No Frills Bandit,'" the FBI said Friday afternoon.

Earlier this year, the FBI had said it was looking for the same man in bank robberies in Spotsylvania, Mechanicsville and Henrico. Last month, investigators were working to determine if the same man robbed an Albermarle bank.

The FBI did not say which robberies Carter was connected to. He's due in court for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 11.
