Police believe they have caught the infamous 'Bearded Bandit,' responsible for a string of bank heists across the region, including the Bank of America and TD Bank in Barrington.
His girlfriend and a three-year-old child were living in the room with him, according to eastbayri. Police believe his beard was a diguise to conceal his identity as they found a fake one among his belongings.
Police have refrained from releasing his identity.
