Suffolk police arrested an Amityville man Monday and charged him with robbing a bank in East Farmingdale more than six months ago.

Police said Edward Hardy, 33, walked into an M&T Bank in East Farmingdale on the afternoon of Jan. 17, handed a teller a note and demanded cash.

Hardy, police said, left the bank at 120 Broad Hollow Rd. with the cash, an amount police did not disclose.
