COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- The FBI says they arrested a man they believe is the "Shaky Bandit." He's believed to be connected to at least twelve bank robberies in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

The man, Brandon Venditti, was arrested on Alligator Alley near mile marker 91. The FBI believe he's connected to a robbery in Collier County around 5 pm Tuesday.

They say law enforcement identified his car as a possible get-a-way vehicle, but the car refused to stop. It crashed around mile marker 91. Another person in the car was also arrested. 

He's called the "Shaky Bandit" because his hands shake during the robberies.
