We have new information on a disturbing armed robbery.
The FBI told us tonight that a bank robber in Northern Idaho is known as the AK-47 Bandit and has pulled off bank heists in other states.
Police in Rexburg say the robber threatened employees and customers at a credit union with what looked like an assault rifle and locked them in a safe yesterday.
Rexburg is in the northeast corner of Idaho.
