    Justin Worley, 33, is under arrest in connection with the case, Seekonk police confirmed Thursday morning through Twitter.
    Wednesday night, police from Rhode Island and Massachusetts made a major bust at a Motel 6 on Fall River Avenue in Seekonk, not far from the sight of the bandit's first robbery back in February.
    An East Providence officer spotted a car and recognized a suspect or suspects inside, which led to the bust. Two cars were towed from the motel, a red Dodge van and a green Jeep.
    Worley didn't have a beard, leading police to question if the beard was a disguise all along. He will be arraigned Thursday in Taunton District Court.
    The FBI is expected to hold a press conference Thursday. Stay with myfoxboston.com and FOX 25 News for updates to this story.
