A 25-year-old man, part of a five-member group, was arrested in a home this morning in St. Louis for allegedly "taking over" several St. Louis banks in April and May.

Cortez Adams is one of three brothers in the five-member group. John V. Gillies, Special Agent in Charge of the the St. Louis Division of the FBI, made the arrest announcement today.

The FBI statement does not elaborate on how the group "took over" multiple banks in the St. Louis area.

Cortez was the final member of the five-person group to be arrested. All are in custody, and face local and federal charges.
