PHOENIX (AP) — A man suspected of robbing seven banks in Arizona since June has been arrested, FBI officials in Phoenix said Wednesday.

They said 59-year-old Scott David Williams was taken into custody without incident following an Aug. 28 bank robbery in Phoenix.

The FBI said Williams allegedly robbed a credit union in Surprise on June 26 and two different branches of the same bank on July 17 in Sun City and July 27 in Peoria.

On Aug. 6, Williams is suspected of robbing a credit union in Sun City and a bank in Peoria.

He allegedly robbed a bank in Goodyear on Aug. 17 before being arrested 11 days later following another heist.


The FBI said in each instance, the suspect approached a teller and demanded money.

They said nobody was injured during the robberies.

It was unclear Wednesday if Williams has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
