I'm so sorry to hear about this awful event. Thank goodness everyone is safe and you were able to keep your head. Hopefully you did something relaxing when you got home...
I drank a entire bottle of wine! Woot
Bad people do suck!
Heres the article on the robbery.
An upstate man suspected of robbing three banks with a weapon was arrested Friday after he jumped into the Massapequa River in an effort to avoid capture, police said.
Two Calverton teenagers who were with him also were arrested, police said.
David Freeland, 22, of Schenectady, was charged with three counts of robbery and criminal use of a firearm as were the two teens -- Victoria Wiechow, 18, of Hillrise Court and Monroe Nash, 17, of Hill Court.
Freeland is also charged with robbery in connection with a Washington Mutual Bank in Bethpage that was robbed June 9, police said.
All three were scheduled to be arraigned Saturday in First District Court in Hempstead.
In less than three hours Friday, police said, the trio hit up three banks.
Around 3:28 p.m. Friday, Wiechow and Nash entered a Washington Mutual Bank in Wantagh and Nash demanded money from a teller while displaying a handgun in his waistband, police said. They received an undetermined amount of money and fled on foot to Freeland's waiting car, police said. (This is my bank)
At 4:40 p.m., Wiechow and Nash robbed a Capital One Bank in East Meadow in the same manner and fled with Freeland in the getaway car, police said.
Around 5:55 p.m. Wiechow and Freeland went a TD Bank in Massapequa , and Freeland displayed the weapon to a teller, demanding money, police said.
They fled after receiving an undisclosed amount and were seen entering a car with Texas plates, which was located and stopped by officers on Lafayette Place in Massapequa, police said.
Freeland fled and jumped into the Massapequa River at the end of Lafayette Place, but officers were able to lift him out of the canal and arrested him without further incident.
