POWELL, Wyo. -- A Utah man suspected of holding up banks in four states after being furloughed from jail will be brought to Wyoming to face charges.
Joshua Beckstead was arrested July 4 in North Dakota on a federal warrant accusing him of holding up banks in Cody and Cheyenne.
The Powell Tribune reported Thursday that the 32-year-old waived his right to extradition hearings, clearing the way for his transfer.
His lawyer didn't respond to the newspaper's request for comment.
Beckstead is accused of robbing banks in Cody and Cheyenne. An FBI affidavit also says that he's suspected of bank robberies in Ogden, Maysville, Okla., and Columbus, Mont., in May and June.
He was released from jail in Ogden on May 8 to go to a dentist's appointment but never returned.
