Hazleton Bank Robbery Suspects Behind Bars

leifertlaw April 19, 2010 Robbery

Our South Florida criminal defense lawyers have heard that two men accused of trying to rob a Hazleton bar were arrested last Wednesday night. Police were called to the M & T Bank last Monday after the attempted bank robbery. One of the suspects actually did rob the same bank earlier in April, escaping with about $3,600, according to police.

Contrary to what every criminal defense attorney would advise, the suspect chatted candidly with reporters, saying “just another day in the neighborhood, that’s all it is.” He even told the judge that he is currently on parole for armed robbery, has a long list of prior convictions, and doesn’t mind going back to prison.

Remember, anything you say to police or reporters can be used against you, so it’s often best to exercise your Miranda rights and remain silent if you have been arrested or charged with a crime.
