A man accused of being the "Blues Bandit" and robbing eight banks across Arizona has been arrested by police. Juan Rivera Jr., 35, was taken into custody by the Phoenix Police Department and the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force. Authorities believe he held up eight banks between October 2016 and May 2017. They say the man was wearing a suit, fedora-like hat, and glasses in each robbery. They said he would display a note demanding money and threaten the use of a weapon.
