Agents say the man is suspected in a total of 17 robberies in the four states since June 24.

Investigators say no gun or other weapon has been used.

The FBI calls the suspect the "Shaggy Bandit" because of his resemblance to a character in the "Scooby-Doo" cartoon.

He was already suspected in more than a dozen robberies in Colorado, mostly in the Denver area, and one in Flagstaff on July 8.

He is now suspected of robbing a bank in Albuquerque, N.M., and one in Hutchinson, Kan.
