PHOENIX (3/15/10)--Two Linden, Ariz., men were arrested Thursday in connection with 16 bank robberies in four states that involved credit unions. Joel Jay Glore and Ronald Michael Capito are believed to be the “High Country Bandits” suspected in the armed robberies of credit unions and banks in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah that began in September. They were apprehended after a week of surveillance by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and local law enforcement officials (abc15.com March 12). The robbers got the name “High Country Bandits” because the initial robberies occurred in Northern Arizona, the TV station said. Armed with semi-automatic handguns, the bandits usually would enter a credit union or bank near closing time and demand cash from the teller drawers, Navajo County Sheriff K.C. Clark told the station. The men involved in the heists would tell everyone in the credit union or bank to “kiss the ground” before they left on all terrain vehicles, which were loaded onto a van before leaving the area, the station said.
