    A Massachusetts man dubbed the "spelling bee bandit" will be in court on charges that he robbed several banks in the Greater Boston Area. 

    Jason Englen was arrested Monday for several bank robberies that date back to October. 

    Prosecutors say Englen robbed banks in Arlington, Reading, Burlington and Peabody. 

    In each incident, he allegedly approached the teller with a note, and each time the word "robbery" was misspelled. 

    Englen was already in state custody on unrelated charges at the time of his arrest.
