'Bucket List Bandit' charged over bank heist

A man nicknamed the Bucket List Bandit by the FBI because he allegedly told a bank teller he had just months to live has been indicted on the last of 10 bank robberies he's suspected of committing.

A federal grand jury indicted 54-year-old Michael Eugene Brewster for the September 10 robbery of a bank in Pennsylvania.

Brewster faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

The FBI says Brewster is suspected of nine robberies in eight other states since June 21. The US Justice Department couldn't immediately say whether or when he'll be charged with those heists.
