PHOENIX -- A Phoenix man suspected of being the "Dynomite Bandit" has been indicted on armed robbery charges.

The FBI on Wednesday said a federal grand jury in Phoenix returned a five-count indictment against Alan Jeffery Farber for armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and use of a firearm in a crime of violence.

The crimes began last summer.

FBI officials said Farber, 48, was at a Chase Bank in Peoria on July 3, a Wells Fargo Bank in the Anthem community on Dec. 21, another Chase branch in Scottsdale on Jan. 2 and a Bank of the West branch in Black Canyon City on Jan. 4.

The FBI gave the robber the misspelled "Dynomite" nickname because the explosive devices he used were fake.
