Mo. man suspect in bank robberies

CUBA, Mo. —The FBI is investigating a central Missouri man suspected of robbing at least six banks.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reported that a Fulton man was recently arrested after a bank robbery in Cuba, Mo.

Lt. James Remillard of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says the man who robbed the First National Bank of Cuba drove off in a white Dodge Grand Caravan with Missouri license plates.

Less than an hour later, a trooper stopped that same type of minivan and discovered a loaded handgun and cash believed to be from the Cuba bank.

The patrol says the description of the suspect and the vehicle matched descriptions from five other bank robberies. They took place in Moberly, Sedalia, Rolla, Chillicothe and El Dorado Springs between March 2009 and this past April.
