The suspect is accused of robbing so many banks that he’s earned two nicknames – the “Elephant Man Bandit” and “Cyborg Bandit.”

Seattlepi.com reports that authorities arrested a 44-year-old Washington state man on suspicion of robbing 30 banks in the Seattle and Marysville areas in the past year.

“(We’re) very elated,” Capt. Steven Paulsen of the Seattle Police Department said Wednesday. “This person has impacted the entire Puget Sound region.”

FBI agents and local police said the man wore latex gloves and covered his face. When he wore a metallic fabric over his face, he was known as the “Cyborg Bandit.” When he covered his head with shirt, he was called “Elephant Man Bandit.”

The man was arrested Tuesday after authorities followed around his van.
