        ANDERSON TOWNSHIP — Bill M. Gregory, 56, of Anderson Township, was arrested Saturday on six bank robbery charges stemming from incidents in which he allegedly aided his brother, Michael R. Gregory, 47, of Fairfield.

        FBI agents and the Safe Streets Task Force arrested Mr. Gregory at his residence in the 400 block of Bishopsridge Drive.

        He is charged with robbing these banks:

        • Firstar Bank, Batavia, Sept. 28

        • Provident Bank, Symmes Township, Oct. 17

        • Provident Bank, Kenwood, Oct. 25

        • Key Bank, Anderson Township, Dec. 12

        • Fifth Third Bank, Fairfield, Dec. 18

        • Fifth Third Bank, Milford, Feb. 20.

        Mr. Gregory is being held without bail at the Hamilton County Justice Center, where he awaits a Monday hearing in federal court.

        Michael Gregory was arrested March 9 and has been charged in connection with eight bank robberies, including the six in which his brother is charged.

        Agents armed with a federal search warrant were at Michael Gregory's apartment when he fired a shot inside the unit and kept FBI agents at bay for 10 hours before surrendering.
