The FBI has added an Internet weapon for catching armed bank robbers in New York and New Jersey. The bureau launched the new "Bandit Tracker" Web site on Wednesday. It features security camera photos of wanted robbers and descriptions of holdups.

Law enforcers hope the public will surf the site and call or e-mail tips that could lead to arrests.

The site was developed by the firm Electronic Tracking Systems.

It allows investigators to download digital images of a suspect, sometimes within an hour after a robbery.

Authorities in Chicago, St. Louis, Arkansas, Indiana, Georgia and Texas use similar sites.
