LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Pikeville, KY man arrested in Colorado on federal bank robbery charges is believed to be a serial bank robber wanted in several states.

The FBI said Jason Lee Robinson, 49, was allegedly involved in the robbery of a bank in Aventura, FL on December 28.

Federal agents say Robinson is the “Traveling Bandit,” who is wanted for multiple bank robberies across the country.

Since the Dec. 28 robbery, police said he hit six other banks in five other states: Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois and most recently, Utah.

He was caught on camera multiple times, including, at one point, driving an SUV with a Kentucky license plate.

Robinson is in federal custody while awaiting his initial court appearance.

The FBI said one was injured in the robberies.
