Authorities say they have caught an Ohio man who they think may have robbed close to a dozen banks in North Carolina and South Carolina in the past three months.
Multiple media outlets reported the robber was dubbed the "Bearcat Bandit" because he wore a jacket with the logo of the University of Cincinnati athletic teams.
Police say 47-year-old Michael J. Dolphin of Loveland, Ohio, was arrested at a gas station in Mocksville after someone in a BB&T bank branch recognized him and called 911.
Investigators think Dolphin robbed banks in Greensboro, Mocksville, High Point, Winston-Salem, Burlington, Hickory, Statesville, Durham and Spartanburg, S.C., since October.
It wasn't immediately clear if Dolphin had an attorney.
