FBI agents and local police found Byers in the San Diego area.

The Greenwich Time reports Byers’ arrest surprised those who worked with him in the modeling community.

Police say Byers robbed a Chase Bank twice and a Citgo gas station in Greenwich. Police hope to extradite Byers so he can face charges including first-degree robbery and felony reckless endangerment.

Other charges are expected. It wasn’t immediately known if Byers had an attorney.
