NEW YORK, Sept. 29 (UPI) —
New York police said they arrested a brazen bank robber who targeted the same downtown branch on three consecutive days.
Investigators said Charles Burnett, 29, of Teaneck, N.J., stole more than $26,000 from the Sovereign Bank branch on Gold Street Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the New York Post reported Thursday.
Burnett was arrested by a pair of police officers passing by the bank as he exited Wednesday.
They tackled him today as I was coming in, said teller Danielle Stephens, 25, who was present during Tuesday’s robbery. “He ran out onto Gold Street and they tackled him.
Same guy, three days in a row, Stephens said. Obviously he wanted to get caught. He didn’t seem like he was all there.
Burnett was charged with three counts of robbery.
