Authorities believe they have caught the "Bearded Bandit," a suspect accused in a string of recent bank robberies, including one in Seekonk.
Following up on a lead, authorities apprehended a man staying at the Motel 6 in Seekonk, according to East Bay Newspapers.
The man's girlfriend and a 3-year-old child were living in the room with him, East Bay Newspapers reported. Authorities believe his beard was a diguise to conceal his identity because they found a fake beard among the man's belongings, according to the article.
The man's name has not been released.
