ALBANY, GA - (WALB) - The man believed to be the bandana bandit is in custody. Albany Police arrested Jerome William Lowe after a 10th holdup Thursday afternoon. 

Police tell WALB that an armed black man came into the Wash House coin laundry and check cashing store at 312 South Slappey and demanded money.

At 12:20, APD says that the man, dressed in dark clothes, a mask, and hat, showed a gun, and told the attendant to fill his bag with money.

This is the M-O of the man who police say has robbed nine businesses in Albany in the last few weeks.

Police apparently knew who they were looking for, and arrested the suspect at a house on Frost Street in East Albany.
