ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A man the FBI identified as the "I-55 Bandit" surrendered to federal authorities Wednesday.

Nineteen-year-old Andrew Maberry of O'Fallon, Ill. surrendered at the FBI's St. Louis Office less than 24 hours after a publicity campaign was launched to identify him.

Federal prosecutors charged Mayberry with one count of bank robbery in connection to the July 2 robbery of Commerce Bank in Arnold, Mo.

Since May 2013, the "I-55 Bandit" is believed to have robbed 10 banks and attempted to rob two others in Illinois, Missouri, Maryland, Tennessee and West Virginia.

The "I-55 Bandit" received the moniker because all four of the banks robbed in the St. Louis area were along Interstate 55: a US Bank in Crystal City, a First State Community Bank in Cape Girardeau, the Commerce Bank in Arnold, and the Scott Credit Union in Edwardsville.

The FBI says it is continuing its investigation to determine if Maberry is connected to any other bank robberies.
