60 Year Old Arrested for Being a Serial Bank Robber

When you think of bank robber’s you usually think of young men or the Bonnie and Clyde version, however a sixty year old man is changing things up in the bank robber book.

The Phoenix police have arrested the 60 year old serial bank robber. This week he had tried to flee from his latest bank job at a downtown bank in Phoenix. The sixty year old man is John Timothy Miller and he was booked on Monday, March 21. He was taken to the Maricopa County jail on “several” counts of bank robbery.

According to the report, the Phoenix Police detectives have been working with the FBI. They worked together since February to track down and arrest the man who had robbed four banks in the Phoenix area.

The FBI and the Phoenix Police were able to have a description of the man they were looking for and that is when they decided to set up surveillance at multiple banks.

According to the Police statement, there was a man that matched the robber’s description that caught the attention of a task-force member on Monday. He was riding his bike.

The member of the task-force had saw the man, identified him as miller then watched as he stashed his bike and then walk around downtown. He then later walked into the Comerica Bank.

The security tape showed Miller walking into the bank and he was wearing a baseball cap low to try to hide his face. He proceeded to give the teller a demanding note. He took an unknown amount of money and left the bank. The police were then able to take him into custody. 

Apparently what made it so easy for Miller to get away is that he wore many layers of clothing. That way he could just strip a layer and keep going, changing his appearance and making him unnoticeable.
