OKLAHOMA CITY -

Authorities released new details Tuesday in an investigation into a serial bank robber in the metro.

The suspect allegedly dressed in different disguises, but his plan was foiled when he wore part of his disguise to work.

Caleb Daniels is accused of robbing MidFirst Bank on three occasions. During the first, he allegedly donned a suit, peach dress shirt, and blonde wig and walked out of the bank in the 13000 block of North May with $5000.

"When they get away with something, they feel like they can keep getting away with it," Southwestern Oklahoma State University Criminologist Dr. Howard Kurtz said.

Dr. Kurtz provided insight after reading a federal affidavit detailing the robberies.

"A lot of times when people commit these types of crimes, they get away clean, but it's not enough, they want people to understand that they were able to do something no one else could do," Kurtz said.

Kurtz said it could be Daniels' motivation for the second and third robberies.

Investigators said Daniels allegedly switched disguises, and in one instance, wore a fake goatee and black hoodie.

Daniels' co-workers told investigators they became suspicious when Daniels asked one employee, "What would you do with a bunch of money no one knew you had?"

Coworkers also told investigators they remembered Daniels wearing a peach dress shirt around the same time as the first robbery and that he frequently wore a black hoodie.

"I think if you have a disguise, you are probably trying not to get caught. But if you are wearing the same clothes back to work, you are not very good at what you are doing," Kurtz concluded.

Investigators also checked Daniels' work records and found that he was clocked out at the same time as all of the robberies.

Daniels was arrested and investigators searched his apartment for evidence. He is currently a federal inmate in the Grady County jail.
