Bucket List Bandit suspect back in Pa., indicted

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man nicknamed the Bucket List Bandit by the FBI because he allegedly told a Utah bank teller he had only months to live during a July heist has been returned to Pennsylvania and indicted on the last of 10 bank robberies he's suspected of committing.

A federal grand jury has indicted 54-year-old Michael Eugene Brewster for the Sept. 10 robbery of the Huntingdon National Bank branch in Erie.

Brewster faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted, and was being held in the Erie County Jail Wednesday until his detention hearing before a federal magistrate in Erie on Thursday.

The FBI says Brewster is suspected of 9 more robberies in eight other states since June 21, but the U.S. Department of Justice couldn't immediately say whether or when he'll be charged with those heists.
