A man suspected of at least two South Florida bank robberies that coincided with nearby bomb threats has surrendered to authorities.
Dijon Gortezz Hudson, 21, turned himself in Friday morning at the Fort Lauderdale Federal Courthouse and was placed in federal custody, FBI officials said.
Hudson had been wanted for his alleged involvement in the July 22 robbery of the Popular Bank at 8401 W. Oakland Park Boulevard in Sunrise, and the July 25 robbery of the Synovus Bank at 632 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale.
According to an arrest warrant, minutes before the Popular robbery, someone called 911 claiming there were two bombs at an Anytime Fitness on W. Oakland Park Boulevard.
Shortly before the Synovus robbery, 911 received a call of a bomb threat to the Galleria Mall in Fort Lauderdale, the warrant said. The call caused the entire mall to be shut down while police investigated.
Both bomb threat calls came from the same phone number. GPS data for the phone number indicated it was frequently in the area of Hudson's girlfriend's house, the warrant said.
Police later found the car believed to be involved in the bank robberies, which belonged to Hudson's girlfriend, the warrant said.
It's unknown what exact charges Hudson will face. Attorney information wasn't available.
