Police Say They've Caught a Busy LI Bank Robber

Yaphank (WALK) - Detectives say that a recent spree of bank hold-ups in Suffolk is over with the arrest of a Deer Park man.

Edward Waller, 42, has been charged with committing four armed robberies at three banks, including the heist at a TD Bank on Portion Road in Lake Ronkonkoma last Sunday. The others took place at a New York Commercial Bank Branch in Deer Park on September 5th and October 11th, and the TD Bank in North Babylon on October 27th.

Waller was arrested after police circulated security camera photos of the suspect, taken at one of the banks that was robbed. Police aren't saying exactly what led them to Waller, however. No one was hurt in any of the robberies.

The suspect is being arraigned today at First District Court in Central Islip.
