Spanish police said Sunday they had arrested a 66-year-old man who is suspected of robbing nine banks since he fled prison last month while on furlough.
He had been on the run since April when he failed to return to the Alcala Meco prison near Madrid where he was serving time for bank robbery after being released on furlough.
Police said the suspect used the same technique in his robberies -- he would dress formally, show a pistol to bank staff while calmly demanding cash and then flee the scene on public transportation.
He is suspected of carrying out his most recent bank robberies in Madrid, the nearby city of Toledo and the Mediterranean port on Alicante.
