Austrian authorities say they've arrested a man suspected of robbing a series of banks while wearing a Barack Obama mask.
Police say the 45-year-old German man is suspected of carrying out seven heists since 2008, the most recent on Thursday afternoon in the village of Fornach. He was taken into custody about 3 kilometers (2 miles) away a short time later after a police dog found a bag containing the mask, a weapon and the haul.
Police official Markus Mitloehner said Friday the unidentified man has confessed to the robberies.
