FBI: Dana Connor, a.k.a ‘Dapper Bandit’ Bank Robber Arrested In East New York
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It appears the Dapper Bandit’s bank robbing days are over.
On Tuesday, Dana Connor was arrested in East New York without incident by FBI agents and NYPD detectives. He was wanted for allegedly robbing 10 New York-area banks between September and December of 2011.
Connor was arrested at 961 Autumn Ave., in a second-floor apartment, at around 12:45 p.m., according to authorities.
Connor was dubbed the “Dapper Bandit” because he typically wore a suit during bank heists, according to the FBI. “We nicknamed him the ‘Dapper Bandit’ because he often enters a bank quite well dressed — either in a suit or sports coat,” FBI spokesman J. Peter Donald told 1010 WINS’ Eileen Lehpamer.
