Man arrested for robbery after heroin overdose

July 17, 2008

A 46-year-old Cudahy man is in custody for robbing National City Bank, 2701 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., at 2:38 p.m. July 11.

St. Francis Detective Timothy Blunt said the man entered the bank and handed a note to a teller demanding money. The man received an undisclosed amount of cash and fled. No weapon was displayed and no one was injured during the incident.

His jacket was found about two blocks north of the bank, Blunt said.

Video surveillance of the suspect was sent to surrounding law enforcement agencies.

Blunt said the man was arrested by Cudahy police after he overdosed on heroin July 12. Officers recognized the man from the video images, Blunt said.

The man was taken to Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore for treatment and later to the St. Francis Police Department for questioning.

The man requested a lawyer and is being held at the Milwaukee County Jail for violating his parole, St. Francis Detective Kevin Weins said. Blunt said the suspect has a record of bank robberies and had recently been released from jail.

Authorities believe the man might also be responsible for the robbery at M&I Bank, 2701 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., on July 1.

Weins said police recovered particles of the suspect’s clothing and a ransom note, but the investigation is ongoing.

The District Attorney’s Office will likely review the case next week, he said.
