Huntington Station man charged in bank robberies

A Huntington Station man has been arrested and charged in two bank robberies this month, including one in his own community, police said.

Marshall Bertoli, 48, of 32 Lieper St., was arrested Wednesday night by Suffolk County police and charged with two counts of third-degree robbery. He was to be arraigned Thursday in First District Court, Central Islip.

Police said Bertoli also has been implicated in three bank robberies in Nassau during November and December.

Police said Bertoli robbed a TD Bank branch in Huntington Station on Dec. 2 and a TD Bank branch at 251 E. Main St., Patchogue, on Monday.

In the most recent robbery, police said Bertoli walked into the bank at 12:35 p.m. and handed a demand note to a teller.

The teller gave Bertoli cash, police said, and he fled south toward Montauk Highway.

It was unclear how much money was taken in the robberies. It also was not immediately clear what led detectives from the Major Case Investigations Unit to Bertoli.
