A suspect in two area bank robberies has been found dead in Georgia, according to the Sanilac County Sheriff's Office.
Police say that Jack Kaiser from the Flushing / Owosso area robbed a Brown City bank on April 18. Then, on April 28, the Capac State Bank in Yale was robbed by a suspect matching Kaiser's description.
Multiple police agencies, including the Brown City Police Department, the Yale Police Department, St. Clair County Sheriff's Office, St Clair Major Crimes Unit, Genesee County Sheriff's Office, Sanilac County Drug Task Force, and the FBI, were all involved in the manhunt for Kaiser.
The investigation lead police to believe that Kaiser had fled Michigan and headed south.
Officials say the police agencies then broadcast this information to the southern states that Kaiser was believed to be traveling through.
On Tuesday investigators were able to tell authorities in Alpharetta, Georgia where the suspect was located.
The Sanilac Sheriff then says police there attempted a traffic stop of the vehicle Kaiser was believed to be driving.
Before the local police could arrest Kaiser, the Sanilac Sheriff's Office says Kaiser shot himself and died.
Evidence linking Kaiser to the bank robberies was found in the vehicle, according to police.
