Investigators say a man suspected in bank robberies in four Western states was turned in by his girlfriend after a failed attempt to win her back.

The Denver Post reports that Adam Lynch confessed to being the so-called "Ho-Hum bandit" to his girlfriend, Julia Lundstrom, at an Irish bar in downtown Denver.

Jefferson County sheriff's investigator Tom Acierno told the newspaper the relationship was unraveling and they met as Lynch tried to win the woman back.

Lynch reportedly owed Lundstrom more than $11,000 and explained that recent deposits into her bank account came from the sale of stocks and bonds. She didn't buy it and Lynch reportedly confessed to the bank robberies in an effort to come clean.

The FBI believes Lynch hit banks in Denver, San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cheyenne, Wyo.
