"High Country Bandits" Busted in Show Low
Police in Navajo County have two men in custody they believe are responsible for a string of bank robberies stretching across four states, including Arizona.
Police believe the "High Country Bandits," as the pair were dubbed by the FBI's bandit-naming department, are responsible for 16 bank robberies in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah over the last several months.

After everyone had "kissed the floor," the two men would jump on a green or maroon ATV and flee.
Glore was arrested at a Show Low health center yesterday morning, where he was being treated for a ruptured appendix.
After arresting Glore, police served search warrants on the men's homes. It's unclear what -- if anything -- was found.
