Cops: Refused at bank, man robs salon
Police say Anthony Jannace, 54, handed a teller at a Bay Shore Citibank on East Main Street a handwritten note demanding cash at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. When the teller refused to comply, police said Jannace left the bank.
Police said Jannace entered the Salon Astarte on West Main Street in Bay Shore, less than a half-mile away, at 1:55 p.m. and verbally demanded cash from one of the employees. She complied and gave him cash from a drawer, though police would not specify how much.
At 3:24 p.m., Suffolk County Police Canine Officer Mark Sacco located Jannace on Mechanicsville Road in Bay Shore and arrested him. Jannace did not display a weapon and was located after witnesses gave officers a physical description.
Jannace, of 998 Crooked Hill Rd., was charged with one count of third degree robbery and one count of attempted robbery. He will be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Wednesday.
