Authorities believe Carson is behind robberies through Utah, Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Idaho committed from December 2016 to July of this year.

In these cases, the robber wore two hats.

He is also a possible suspect in additional bank robberies in Colorado, Iowa and Ohio committed since July.

Authorities expect Carson will first be taken to face a judge in Utah for the December robbery there.
