Hudson Valley Bank Robber Busted in Orange County, New York
The bank was robbed on Friday October 15th.
In 2021 it still amazes me that people think that robbing a bank is something they can get away with, the thought has never crossed my mind, maybe they think that they have the perfect plan and there's no way they could ever get caught. In this case out of Orange County, after some great police work, a suspect is in custody in record time.
It was early Friday afternoon (10/15/2021) at the Chase Bank in Greenwood Lake, located at 138 Windermere Ave, and everything seemed normal until when a male subject entered the bank and demanded cash according to a press release from the Village of Greenwood Lake Police Department.
At approximately 12:28 p.m. a male entered the bank, approached a teller, showed a firearm and demanded cash immediately. The teller handed over cash, and the subject fled the scene on foot, heading south outside of the bank.
Once police were notified of the robbery they released a description of the male saying that he was a white-male, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing between 180-190 pounds with a slender build. He was wearing blue jeans, blue jacket and a baseball style hat. A picture of the suspect was captured during the robbery...
