LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A suspected Las Vegas bank robber whom authorities dubbed the "No Rubber Bands Bandit" was taken into custody this week.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Marquee Munerlyn, 27, was suspected of holding up three banks in Henderson and Las Vegas on March 30.
A federal complaint filed in U.S. District Court listed the three banks that were held up:
U.S. Bank inside Smith's food store located at 830 S. Boulder Highway, Henderson;
U.S. Bank inside Von's food store located at 2667 Windmill Parkway, Henderson;
U.S. Bank inside Albertson's food store located at 7350 S. Rainbow Boulevard, Las Vegas.
The FBI said Munerlyn passed threatening notes to the tellers, demanding cash. In one of the hold-ups, authorities said, the suspect told the teller he wanted "no rubber bands" wrapped around the money.
There were no injuries as a result of the hold-ups.
A Criminal Apprehension Team Task Force comprised of the FBI and Las Vegas Metro and Henderson police officers took Munerlyn into custody without incident Monday.
