MILWAUKEE- It appears the "Ball Cap Bandit" may have finally struck out.
One man is accused of robbing ten banks in nine cities throughout the suburbs. The big arrest went down on Milwaukee's south side.
Crystal Scales works across the street at Mil-Town Motors and saw where police tracked down a man who could be the "Ball Cap Bandit".
"They all were standing there and every last one of them pulled their guns out, and I'm like oh my God what's going on? So I'm just watching and all of the sudden a thousand police cars show up," described Scales.
He's a bold robber who's hit ten banks, wearing a baseball hat every time. The latest was Friday morning in Germantown.
Less than an hour later, a Milwaukee County sheriff's deputy spotted a car matching the description of one at the scene. The deputy and an MPD squad cornered the car in a gas station parking lot near S. 6th St. and W. Becher St., and there was nowhere to go.
"They couldn't even get customers in the lot over there, they had almost the whole lot blocked off," said Scales.
Par Dhillon's family owns the gas station. "( I saw) a lot of cops. A lot of sheriffs (deputies) and stuff here," said Par Dhillon.
Witnesses say police took a man and a woman into custody. Police say they still have a lot of work to do on this case and it will likely be next week before they can release any more information.
