FBI: 'Dangerous' man with LI ties wanted in bank heists
A man with ties to Mastic and Shirley is wanted in connection with a series of bank robberies along the Eastern Seaboard, the FBI said Monday.
Luis Alomar, 37, should be considered armed and dangerous, according to a news release from the FBI's New York field office.
A federal arrest warrant has been issued for Alomar in Delaware for bank robbery, and he is a suspect in several more, including ones in New York and New Jersey. The FBI did not specify the locations of the robberies.
His routine is to enter a bank or commercial site, demand money and, in some cases, display a weapon, the release said.
He also often hands a teller a note demanding cash.
"Alomar is alleged to have made verbal threats to bank tellers, telling them he would shoot them if they said anything. He normally demands large bills," the FBI said in the release.
In addition to ties to Long Island, Alomar, who speaks Spanish, also has ties to southern Florida, specifically Palm Beach County, as well as Kissimmee in Osceola County.
He has used aliases, including Arturo Alomar, Luis Arturo, David Diaz, David Gonzalez, Louis Alomar and Luis Castillo, the release said.
Alomar has a large mole on the right side of his forehead and tattoos on right arm and right leg.
