Federal Bureau of Investigation arrests suspected 'Blues Bandit' wanted in 8 bank robberies”

ATLANTA-Special Agent in Charge David J. LeValley, FBI Atlanta Field Office, in conjunction with Police Chief Erika Shields, Atlanta Police Department, announces the following arrests in an investigation involving the robbery of four banks and the attempted robbery of two others that occurred in the metro Atlanta area and in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Ribera was reportedly arrested by Phoenix Police, as well as the FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force on Thursday. No one was hurt during the bank robberies.

The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force worked with the Phoenix Police Department, Glendale Police Department, Surprise Police Department, Desert Schools Federal Credit Union and Walmart Corporate Security in taking the man into custody.

A Kennesaw, Georgia man, Tremmell Adams, 30, was also arrested at the same address.

In all the incidents, a lone woman entered the bank and demanded a note demanding money. As of this writing, the two have been charged with two out of six bank robberies. She left the bank after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, Emmett said.

The FBI believes the same perpetrator is also responsible for the June 26 robbery of a PNC Bank on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs and a June 29 attempt at a SunTrust Bank branch Chattanooga, Tennessee - the sole incident outside metro Atlanta. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the robbery departed the bank without further incident.

Rivera is a suspect in eight bank robberies throughout the Valley between October 3, 2016 and May 11, 2017. In spite of the threat contained in the note, the teller did not give the robber money and the robber demanded the note back and departed the bank without incident. Ware and Adams's heists went without incident.
