The serial bank robber dubbed the ‘Ray-Bandit’ by the FBI has been captured, according to FBI spokesperson Dee Rybiski.

The robber – named for the sunglasses he wore during 17 alleged bank robberies in seven different states – was arrested earlier this month after a bank robbery in Elgin, Ill., near Chicago, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The FBI identified the bandit as Jeremy Evans of Carol Stream, Ill.

Agents say the bandit constantly changed his look through false teeth, hair dye and different hats to go with the sunglasses. No one was hurt in any of the robberies.
