The Atlanta FBI agents announced Monday the capture of the “Freedom Fighter Bandit” who they said robbed nine banks, and told the tellers it was for a social cause.
Nilsa Marie Urena, 25, was taken into custody Saturday after allegedly robbing a bank in Tennessee Saturday. She’s wanted for a bank robbery spree that began last October, and was concentrated in the Atlanta area.
Atlanta FBI spokesman Kevin Rowson said Urena earned her moniker “because she states that she is robbing the banks for a cause.” He wasn’t saying what that cause was, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.
Her spree is alleged to have begun Oct. 30 in Ellenwood.
