Somerset County Sheriff's Deputies caught up with 35-year-old Travis Carrigan on Wednesday.They say he wore a mask and wielded the carpenter's framing hammer while robbing a Camden National Bank branch on Jan. 17 and a Skowhegan Savings Bank branch on Feb. 4.

He's charged with two counts of robbery and is being held at the Somerset County Jail. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.

Police say they have also recovered the hammer. Chief Deputy Dale Lancaster says the motive appears to be drug-related and Carrigan acted alone.
