Relatives of a man whom the FBI dubbed the "Bucket List Bandit" because he told victims he had a terminal illness say they were not surprised he's once again on the wrong side of the law.

Michael Eugene Brewster of Pensacola, Fla., was arrested Thursday after running a stop sign near a casino in Roland, Okla. The FBI suspects he is responsible for knocking off 10 banks in nine states.

Ronald Brewster of Cincinnati told The Associated Press his brother may have "wanted to go down with a bang," but acknowledged he cut off contact with his brother years ago.

Michael Brewster has a lengthy criminal record that includes prison stints in Ohio and Kentucky.
