A big arrest in Southeastern Kentucky led the FBI to a suspected bank robber.

Nine agencies in two states share responsibility for Friday's arrest of Jason Fox in Barbourville.

Police say he's the man nicknamed 'the bad hair bandit'- because of his habit of wearing ladies wigs during the robberies.

Fox reportedly confessed to holding up seven banks in Kentucky and Tennessee.

Police say Fox robbed a credit union in Williamsburg Thursday night.

They say he didn't get away with a lot of money, so they expected him to hit again.

Officers were patrolling nearby banks Friday when they pulled over Fox.

He's in the Whitley County jail right now, waiting to be taken into custody by the FBI.
