DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Police have named a suspect in one of a string of five robberies the FBI has connected to the so-called “Ball Cap Bandit.”

He is so called because he has worn a ball cap in each of the five robberies.

Police are looking for Melvin Andrew Williamson, 50, of Durham, who is charged with common-law robbery in connection with a robbery Friday at the State Employees’ Credit Union on Ben Franklin Boulevard in Durham.
