This Wasn’t What People Meant by Repeat Business

Gothamist points to the story of a bank robber so compulsive he robbed the same banks over and over again:

A man held up two banks on a street near his

home four times in the last week, including one of the banks twice in

one day, before he was arrested on Tuesday apparently while on his way

to make another illegal withdrawal, police said.

Orlando Taylor,

26, was facing multiple robbery charges, police said. The name of his

attorney was not immediately available Tuesday evening, and a telephone

at his Brooklyn address was disconnected.The spree began at

10:30 a.m. Friday, when the bandit used a threatening note to rob an

HSBC branch about 12 blocks from his home, police said. Using the same

method the next day, he ripped off a Bank of America branch down the

block, they said.


Monday at 10 a.m., the robber hit Bank of America again, police said.

After changing his clothes, he returned at about 2:20 p.m. and took

more money, they said.With uniformed and plainclothes officers

swarming on Tuesday, Taylor was spotted headed toward the HSBC branch

again and was arrested, police said.

I guess “spread the wealth” wasn’t a phrase this guy knew too well…
