Police catch Little Buddy Bandit

Posted: Updated:

The serial bank robbery suspect dubbed the "Little Buddy Bandit" was arrested on Monday, December 8. 53-year old Joseph Diaz has been booked into the Pima County Jail on 7 counts of robbery and 1 count of unlawful flight from pursuing law enforcement.

Investigators dubbed Diaz the "Little Buddy Bandit" because bank surveillance pictures showed him wearing a fisherman's hat similar to the one worn by the title character in the 1960's TV show Gilligan's Island.
