Police arrested a man from US’ Orlando after he was found to be connected to a pair of robberies, Florida-based news agencies WFLA Channel 8 and WESH reported.
The investigation was launched after a TD Bank branch was robbed by a man who was wearing a hat with the word ‘police’ written on it and a pair of sunglasses.
The bank’s staff said that the bank robber handed the teller a note which had the words ‘assault’ and ‘money’ written on it. He then took the cash and fled the crime scene on foot.
The same man robbed a Circle K two days later. This time also the robber handed the store clerk a note. “Give me all the money and a pack of 305’s 100’s please,” the note read, according to the police officials investigating the case.
During the store loot, the suspect was wearing a police hat.
The police officers, who were quick to respond, arrived on the scene to find the suspect, 45-year-old Nicolas Zapater-Lamadrid, in front of the store. He possessed the stolen items and the cash on him.
Zapater-Lamadrid confessed to the robberies and said that he committed these crimes because he was bored.
