Suffolk County police caught up to the Miller Place man who allegedly robbed a Rocky Point bank on April 14, but the man didn’t go down without a fight.
Max Schneider, 26, was arrested on April 16 in Huntington at approximately 5:45 p.m., after the Suffolk County Police Department’s Pattern Crime Unit and Larceny Task Force detectives spotted him pulling into the parking lot of the Walt Whitman Mall, according to police.
Schneider allegedly attempted to escape detectives, but in the process collided his 2012 Honda Civic with two police vehicles.
Officials allege he is the man who entered the Capital One bank on Route 25A in Rocky Point shortly after 9 a.m. on April 14 and gave a teller a note demanding money. Police said he then fled on foot with an unknown amount of money.
Police arrested and charged Schneider with third-degree robbery; criminal mischief; reckless endangerment; and violation of a parole warrant.
Attorney information for the defendant was not immediately available.
According to online New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision records, Schneider was convicted of third-degree robbery in 2013.
Schneider will be arraigned in Suffolk County District Court in Central Islip on April 17.
