Police arrested a man they say committed multiple bank robberies in Montgomery County.

Samuel Lewis, 44, of Beltsville, Maryland, has been charged with 7 robberies since last October.  Investigators said they are also investigating four other robberies in Montgomery County and Virginia that were similar in style. 

Authorities said Lewis used a firearm to commit the bank thefts.  Rockville District Court set bail at $1,000,000.

Montgomery County police caught Lewis after receiving an anonymous tip.  They said in a release that the tipster, who received an identifying number over the phone, is eligible for a reward up to $2,500.
