GPS snags Selden bank robbery suspect
Police arrested a man just a few hours after he allegedly robbed a Bank of America in Selden on Monday morning.
Kyle Konecny, 25, was arrested and charged with second-degree robbery after he allegedly entered a Bank of America on Middle Country Road, displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash from the teller, police said. He then fled on foot at about 10 a.m.
Suffolk County Police Department 6th Precinct police officers were able to track Konecny to the Elmwood Road area thanks to a GPS tracking device from the bank.
Konecny, of Selden, will be arraigned in Suffolk County District Court in Central Islip on April 21.
Attorney information for Konecny wasn’t immediately available.
Detectives are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
