ROY, Utah (AP) — Police in four states are investigating a man dubbed the “Bucket List Bandit” for robbing banks and handing tellers notes indicating he only has months to live.

A Utah police chief says the man who robbed a bank in Roy last week used the same operating procedure at three other banks in Idaho, Colorado and Arizona last month.

Roy Police Chief Greg Whinham tells the Standard-Examiner of Ogden that a man walked into a Wells Fargo branch July 6 and had a note ordering the teller not to mess with him and to hand over a specific amount of money. The note also said he had just four months to live.

Whinham says the man was wearing identical clothing in all four robberies.
