A suspect in a series of bank robberies along the Eastern Seaboard was arrested in Medford early Tuesday, the FBI said.

Fugitive Luis Alomar, 37, was taken into custody at about 2:30 a.m., the FBI's New York field office said in a news release. He is currently being held on state parole violations at the Suffolk County Jail, said Christios Sinos, a supervisory special agent at the FBI. An arraignment had not yet been scheduled, he said.

The release said that police from Suffolk County, Westchester, Yonkers and Greenwich, Conn., assisted in the arrest, as did the New York State Division of Parole.

The release did not provide details of the arrest or Alomar's arraignment information, and the agency did not immediately respond to an email seeking more information.

The FBI had issued a news release on Monday, warning that Alomar -- who has ties to the Mastic and Shirley areas -- was wanted and could be armed and dangerous.

A federal arrest warrant had been issued for Alomar in Delaware for bank robbery, and he is a suspect in several more, including ones in New York and New Jersey, the FBI said Monday.

The FBI did not specify the locations of the robberies.

In addition to ties to Long Island, Alomar also has ties to southern Florida, specifically Palm Beach County, as well as Kissimmee in Osceola County.

He has used aliases, including Arturo Alomar, Luis Arturo, David Diaz, David Gonzalez, Louis Alomar and Luis Castillo, the release said.
