BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Police say they caught a bumbling bank
robber who crashed his getaway car and fled by bus and taxi, only
to make it home and find his roommate dead.
Authorities found nearly $4,000 stolen from a Darien bank after
the suspect called 911 to report the roommate's apparent suicide.
Fifty-nine-year-old David Maksimik was brought before a federal
magistrate in Bridgeport Tuesday.
Police say he held up the bank on Jan. 29 and rear-ended another
car fleeing the robbery. They say Maksimik didn't make it home
until he got rides on a bus, a taxi and with his sister.
Maksimik found his roommate dead and called 911. Police
responding to the suicide say they found the bank money inside a
bag on Maksimik's bed.
