Bucket List Bandit believed caught FBI agents say a suspect dubbed the ``Bucket List Bandit'' who is believed to be responsible for bank robberies in nine states has been arrested in Oklahoma. 54-year-old Michael Eugene Brewster was arrested Thursday night in Roland, Okla. The FBI nicknamed the robber the ``Bucket List Bandit'' after he allegedly told a Utah bank teller he had only four months to live. It says a confidential informant gave the FBI Brewster's name and birth date. The bandit's most recent strike was in Pennsylvania. He robbed the PNC bank branch on the west side of Bloomington August 17th . After the tip, authorities reviewed surveillance video and found an ``obvious likeness'' to Brewster during robberies in Missouri, Colorado, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, North Carolina, Tennessee and Illinois.
