'Camry Cruisin' Bank Robber' Arrested by FBI, SAPD

The so called 'Camry Cruisin' Bandit' has cruised his way into a jail cell, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The FBI says suspect Dennis Edward Stephen was arrested by San Antonio Police shortly after sticking up a bank on Loop 1604 at closing time on Tuesday.

The feds say Stephen was using the disguise which he had used in several other robberies, a surgical mask covering his face and a UTSA Roadrunners baseball cap pulled low over his head.

The FBI says Stephen approached two tellers and demanded money.  He stuffed the cash into a bag and drove off, but SAPD was on to him, and pulled him over near Loop 1604 and Lockhill-Selma.  He was taken into custody without incident.

Investigators say Stephen is suspected in seven previous bank robberies, all of which included the same clothing description. He was dubbed the 'Camry Cruisin' Bandit' because he would use a Toyota Camry to make his getaway.

Stephen is held in jail awaiting a court appearance set for Friday.  

Federal prosecutors say they could withdraw up to twenty years of his life if he is convicted on bank robbery charges.
