Suspected'AK-47 Bandit Arrested in Nebraska on Suspicion of Shooting Kansas State Trooper

The man dubbed the AK-47 Bandit is believed to have entered the Iowa Heartland Credit Union on South Monroe Avenue on July 28, armed with an AK-47 rifle with a high-capacity magazine.

But agents said the explosives and guns found in Gathercole's Roundup residence, which authorities were alerted to by a jail call from Gathercole to his grandmother, were the same types of weapons used in the bank robberies. Gathercole is in jail in Nebraska and is accused of shooting at a Kansas state trooper with an AK-47 rifle a week ago. She said she would and then added: "Um, this is recorded".

Investigators suspect Gathercole may be responsible for the series of six bank robberies during the span of three years in the states of California, Washington, Idaho, Nebraska and Iowa, according to the press release. During the search, investigators located several pieces of evidence they believe were used in the commission of the various bank robberies.

During one of the robberies in California, the man shot and seriously wounded an officer, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation officials.

Anxious about the Trump administration's proposed cuts to federal retirement? He was wanted after someone fired shots at a Kansas trooper. The trooper wasn't injured.

Gathercole was first arrested after an "interaction" with the Musselshell County Sheriff's department and the Montana Highway Patrol on June 14.

"Multiple departments are investigating whether evidence found during the search in Montana may be linked to a series of bank robberies now under investigation in California and other states", she said.

He was arrested last week in Lexington, after a Dawson County Sheriff's deputy realized his vehicle matched a description of a man that shot towards a Kansas state trooper the night before.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, along with officers from Chino, Idaho and Montana, searched Gathercole's home in the town of Roundup, about 50 miles north of Billings, on Saturday, according to officials.

Agents searched Gathercole's Montana home Saturday, where they found multiple guns and explosive devices.

Investigators believe Gathercole, 39, is the AK-47 Bandit, according to a law enforcement source who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to speak publicly.

Gathercole is being held on charges of theft and possession of stolen firearms.

Gathercole also was named as a resident of San Jacinto after his arrest in Nebraska.

Eimiller said federal charges have not been filed against Gathercole.

During a 2012 robbery at a bank in Chino, CA, the AK-47 Bandit - dressed in body armor and wearing a ski mask - fired his AK-47 rifle at a Chino police officer outside the bank.

The application to search Gathercole's home by FBI Special Agent Andrew Ubbelohde details one bank robbery by the "AK-47 Bandit" that FBI officials said was carried out by Gathercole: A 2014 Nebraska City, Nebraska, robbery in which $90,258 was stolen.

The search warrant application did not describe other "AK-47 Bandit" robberies.
