KINGDOM CITY, Mo. (AP) A man suspected of robbing banks in
five states has been captured in Missouri after someone recognized
him from the television show America's Most Wanted.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said in a news release Sunday
that Chad E. Schaffner was arrested Saturday at a motel in the
small town of Kingdom City, about 25 miles east of Columbia.
The 37-year-old Indianapolis man was wanted on felony warrants
for bank robbery, burglary, armed robbery and receiving stolen
property. Authorities believe he robbed banks in Illinois,
Kentucky, North and South Carolina and Tennessee.
Schaffner was named a suspect in the robberies after bank
surveillance photos from holdups dating to May were flashed on
electronic billboards across the South.
