REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — The FBI says a robber who held up an eastern Idaho credit union with an AK-47 rifle Wednesday likely has hit other banks elsewhere in the country. The federal law enforcement agency released photos Thursday from the heist at the East Idaho Credit Union in Rexburg showing the man brandishing an assault rifle. Officials say the man is also known as the “AK-47 Bandit” and is suspected in robberies including a holdup in California in February in which he wounded a police officer. The subject entered the Rexburg bank at approximately 4:30 p.m. wearing a mask, black gloves, a black coat with a hood, and baggy Levi jeans during the robbery. After ordering employees into a vault, he was seen driving in a dark blue sedan on South Yellowstone Highway.
