A man considered to be the “Know-It-All bandit,” reportedly wanted in a series of bank robberies, has been arrested in connection with a Pomona bank robbery, police said.

Pomona police arrested Michael Williams, 56, and turned over his case to the FBI, which was looking for Williams in connection with robberies in Ontario and Chino, according to police and media reports.

Officers stopped Williams and a passenger in a 1989 Buick LeSabre about noon Friday, after a radio call that a vehicle and man of his description had robbed the Citizens Business Bank at 1095 N. Garey Ave., police said.

Money and a demand note were found on the front seat of the car, police said. The passenger was not charged.

It was unclear from a police report why Williams was allegedly known to law enforcement as the Know-It-All bandit.
