TEMPLE HILLS, Md. | Frederick County police say a multi-agency effort has led to the arrest of a 56-year-old man suspected of robbing eight banks between October and January.

Earl Macvernon Pegram was arrested Thursday in Temple Hills. Police say he robbed banks in Glen Burnie, Crofton, Frederick, Waldorf and Falls Church, Va. They say in each robbery, Pegram told the teller to put money into a bag and never displayed a weapon.

After the Dec. 4 robbery of Comstar Federal Credit Union in Frederick, investigators obtained video footage of the getaway car. Though the tag number wasn’t visible, police determined they were looking for a 2002 Buick LeSabre with Maryland agricultural tags. That turned out to be enough information to pinpoint a suspect.

Pegram is being held at the Charles County jail.
