Wed, 13 Mar 2013 15:22:39 GMT — A man nicknamed the "Bucket List Bandit" by the FBI after he allegedly told a Utah bank teller that he had just four months to live will plead guilty before a federal judge in Pennsylvania to that robbery and ten other heists in nine other states. Federal public defender Thomas Patton said Michael Eugene Brewster, formerly of Pensacola, Fla., will plead guilty Wednesday to the September 10th Huntingdon National Bank Heist in Erie, which capped a cross-country string of robberies that began June 21 in Arvada, Colo. Until the new charges were filed Tuesday, Brewster had been formally charged with only the Erie bank robbery, though the FBI identified him as a suspect in the others based on surveillance video. Brewster has been jailed since his arrest in Oklahoma on Sept. 13. Brewster is also a suspect in robberies in Missouri, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, North Carolina, Tennessee and Illinois.
