The man believed by the FBI to be the Bucket List Bandit may be driving a stolen rental car from Florida, according to a federal arrest warrant obtained by the Standard-Examiner.
Michael Eugene Brewster, 54, has been identified as the elusive bank robber as a result of telephone tip to the FBI's office in Erie, Pa., on Wednesday, the warrant states.
He remained at large Thursday night.
The Bucket List Bandit, nicknamed first by the Standard-Examiner because he passed a threatening note to a teller at a Wells Fargo Bank at 5603 S. 1900 West in Roy on July 6 claiming he only had four months to live, is now suspected of robbing 10 banks across the country.
The latest robbery was Monday at the Huntington National Bank in Erie, according to the arrest warrant.
In addition to the Roy and Erie robberies, the Bucket List Bandit has committed heists in Pocatello; Arvada, Colo.; Flagstaff, Ariz.; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Bloomington, Ill., Columbia, Mo.; and O'Fallon, Mo.
No one has been injured in any of the holdups. The robber has not displayed a weapon but has implied that he has one in several robberies.
The arrest warrant provides details about the Erie bank robbery, offering the first public glimpse of how the Bucket List Bandit operates.
The robber entered the bank and handed a teller a note demanding $5,000 in a bag and stating he had a gun but did not want to use it.
The note also told the teller she had a minute to comply and advised her not to provide any bait bills or set off any alarms, the arrest warrant states.
The teller complied and provided the Bucket List Bandit with $4,080 and a dye pack.
"The robber then told the victim teller wording to the effect that he had cancer and did not care what happens, to give him a minute" to escape, the arrest warrant states.
Following a telephone tip, an FBI agent searched National Crime Information Center records for Brewster and found that he has an active arrest warrant for vehicle theft issued July 6 by the Pensacola, Fla., Police Department.
A Pensacola police report indicates that a woman allowed Brewster to borrow her rented 2012 black Chevy Captiva on June 11, but he never returned the vehicle, the arrest warrant states.
A sport utility vehicle, consistent with the Captiva stolen in Florida, allegedly by Brewster, was seen fleeing the scene of a July 20 robbery at the Bank of America in Winston-Salem, N.C., believed to have been committed by the Bucket List Bandit, the arrest warrant states.
