CICERO, Ill. (AP) - Suburban Chicago police have arrested a 31-year-old man they believe is the "No Boundary Bank Robber."

A Monday statement from the town of Cicero says its officers arrested Rodrigo Medellin Sunday afternoon following a short car and foot chase. Authorities say the Chicago-area man had a gun in his possession.

The "No Boundary Bank Robber" got his nickname for robbing a dozen banks over a wide area around Chicago between May 16 and August 31. The robber's targets included banks in River Forrest, Stickney and in several parts of Chicago itself.

Medellin faces multiple counts of armed robbery. The Cicero statement did not include the name of a defense attorney for Medellin.
