 (Macon-AP) -- Officials say a Savannah man accused of robbing half a dozen banks in Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina is a suspect in at least a dozen other bank holdups.

FBI spokesman Randall Crigger says authorities arrested 24-year-old Corey Christie Friday just minutes after police said he robbed a bank in Chattanooga, Tennessee, at gunpoint. He's in custody in the Hamilton County Jail in Tennessee.

FBI officials tell The Macon Telegraph that he's also charged with robbing three banks in east Macon and one in Atlanta as well as a bank in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The FBI's Crigger says investigators believe Christie started a bank robbery spree through three states after his release from federal prison in August and had been identified as a suspect last week before his arrest.

Christie served time for a 1999 bank robbery in Savannah. Macon police Major David Matthews says Christie was linked to the Macon robberies through his method of operation and a physical description.

Christie was arrested in Tennessee when an off-duty Chattanooga police officer walked into the bank and saw him running out of the bank with a bag and followed him. Minutes after the officer started chasing him, a dye-pack inside the bag exploded.
