MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WTVA) -- A Georgia man believed to be responsible for bank robberies in five states is scheduled to appear in federal court on Thursday.
Court documents show a federal judge has set a change of plea hearing for Robert Thomas Shantz, 33, of Georgia.
Shantz was arrested along with another person for the armed robbery of a bank in Cordova, Tennessee in July of 2011.
They were captured after a customer followed them out of the bank and stayed on the phone with authorities until they were arrested.
The bank was among those authorities say were held up by Shantz in four states in less than a month.
The banks included the Trustmark bank branch on West Main Street in Tupelo.
Shantz has been indicted for the robbery in Tennessee and another in central Arkansas.
The hearing is set for 10 a.m.
