A Hollywood man went on a bank robbery spree Friday, walking into three banks and leaving without firing a single shot or injuring any customer, the FBI said.

With the FBI hot on his trail and releasing pictures of him in the act, he turned himself in.

Sandy Graham Jr., 40, surrendered Saturday for his involvement in the Broward County bank robberies, the FBI said. Authorities said Graham started his spree at a Chase branch at 4224 Hollywood Blvd. at 2:36 p.m. Friday.

He went inside and implied he had a weapon, then demanded money from an employee, the FBI said. There were people in the bank, but no one was injured.
