MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities have arrested a suspected bank robber and are investigating whether he may be responsible for potentially dozens of other bank robberies in Minnesota.

FBI spokesman Kyle Loven says there are "several indicators'' that suggest the suspect arrested in connection with Tuesday's robbery of the Rolling Hills Bank in Brewster is the serial bank robber dubbed the "Man in Black.''

Loven says the method used in the Brewster robbery matches that of the "Man in Black'' who typically dresses in black from head to toe, covers his face, uses a handgun, demands cash from a teller, and goes back out the door.

The suspect was arrested by the St. Peter Police Department and is in state custody. He has not been charged.
