ST. LOUIS (KFVS) -

The I-55 Bandit turned himself in on Wednesday, according to the FBI.

Dean C. Bryant, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI St. Louis Division, announced that Andrew Maberry was arrested and charged with one count of bank robbery in connection with a July 2 robbery at Commerce Bank in Arnold, Mo.

Maberry was charged via a federal complaint and was arraigned Wednesday afternoon at the federal courthouse.

Maberry, 19, of O'Fallon, Ill., surrendered to the St. Louis FBI Field Office less than 24 hours after a publicity campaign was launched asking for the public's help in capturing the I-55 Bandit.

"We want to thank the news media and digital billboard companies for providing coverage on the I-55 Bandit," said SAC Bryant. "We have no doubt Maberry's surrender was a direct result of the extensive media attention. We also appreciate the dozens of solid tips we were provided by the public. The FBI has long relied on the public to help identify and capture criminals."

Since May 6, the I-55 Bandit is believed to have robbed 10 banks and attempted to rob two others in five states: Illinois, Missouri, Maryland, West Virginia and Tennessee.

The I-55 Bandit moniker comes from the fact that all four banks robbed in the St. Louis region were along Interstate 55.

The FBI continues the investigation to determine if Maberry is linked to other bank robberies.
