Police Nab 'Bearded Bandit' Suspect

The man was living with his girlfriend and a three-year-old child in Motel 6 in Seekonk; his beard appears to have been part of a disguise.

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.

Following up on a lead, police apprehended a man staying at the Motel 6 in Seekonk, Mass., according to reports from East Bay Newspapers.

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. 

Patch will follow up with this story.
