"Countdown Bandit" Bank Robber Caught

A gunman suspected of robbing a Region's Bank in Tyler is now in federal custody. Police believe Chris Drew, 45, is also responsible for 13 bank robberies in the Dallas area, where he was arrested on Friday. Police say Drew called himself the "Countdown Bandit" because his early thefts happened leading up to New Year's Day. Drew faces at least one charge of aggravated robbery.
