Xaviar Michael Babudar, a resident of Overland, Kansas was apprehended back on July 7 in Lincoln after being on the run for more than four months. Babudar has been quite popular on social media platforms over the years, known as as the Kansas City Chiefs “ChiefsAholic,” where he is known for his event appearances and wacky photo posts often wearing a wolf-mask. 

New court documents that were filed in the U.S. District Court last week allege that Babudar is suspected of completing additional robberies while evading prosecution. The most recent documents have added a June 8 robbery of Heritage Bank in Sparks, Nevada, followed by the robbery of a U.S. Bank branch in El Dorado Hills that took place on July 3. Video surveillance footage and clothes recovered from Babudar’s car have reportedly been collected as evidence in the case.

Babudar was originally charged for the robbery of the Tulsa Teachers Federal Credit Union Dec. 16, 2022. He was then released on bond in February of 2023. He allegedly removed his ankle monitor in March, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Babudar allegedly traveled through the Midwest where he performed robberies at various banks and credit unions across several states. Babudar is suspected of laundering stolen money using casinos and various bank accounts, according to court documents.

Following his arrest in Oklahoma for the robbery of the Tulsa credit union, FBI investigators reviewed bank and casino transaction records as well as sensitive financial reporting  and allege that he purchased and redeemed over a million dollars in chips from casinos in three different states, according to the U.S.Attorney’s Office.

Review of Babudar’s cell phone records reportedly match the same cities and areas as his attempted and succesful bank robberies, some of which had not yet been solved. Court documents list robberies in Nebraska, Iowa, Tennessee and Oklahoma and two attempted credit union robberies in Minnesota.

Babudar appeared in court last week where waived his right to a preliminary hearing and requested a new public defenders in his case. Charges for the newly added Sparks and El Dorado Hills robberies he is suspected of have not been formally charged as of yet.
