King County prosecutors have filed charges against a man arrested at an Aurora motel last week for several bank robberies around, and prosecutors appear to have a fairly damning piece of evidence in their case.

According to police and court documents, Casey Shane Printz used a BB gun to rob two banks in Northgate and the University District, and a kitchen supply store in the University Village earlier this month to support a $70 a day heroin habit. Records say Printz made off with about $1,000 in the robberies.

Court documents say that during the three robberies, Printz was wearing a gray sweatshirt with his own name, printed on the front. The shirt—described by FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs as looking similar to a Princeton University shirt—was apparently partially visible on surveillance footage taken during both bank robberies. Police collected the shirt as evidence when they arrested Printz.

We're working on getting a photo of the shirt.
