DETROIT -- The FBI says a man charged with robbing five Detroit-area banks was caught after investigators matched him to photos on Facebook.

Anthony Wilson was indicted Tuesday, two months after his arrest on a criminal complaint. He's accused of stealing $6,300 during five bank robberies from October through January.

FBI agent Juan Herrera says a tipster called after seeing bank surveillance photos. The tipster offered Wilson's name, and the FBI found his profile photo on Facebook.

Herrera says there were Facebook photos of the 25-year-old Wilson wearing clothes that were worn during a robbery.

Wilson has been free on bond since his arrest. A message seeking comment was left with his attorney Wednesday.
