    Twin brothers have been arrested after allegedly robbing their second Long Island bank in eight days, police say.

    Authorities say Daniel and Cory Amarosa were charged Wednesday with two counts of third-degree robbery after they were caught robbing a Chase Bank in Centereach and detectives linked them to another bank robbery in the area that happened May 22.

    Suffolk Police say in the most recent incident, Daniel Amarosa walked into a Chase Bank just after 5 p.m., handed the teller a note announcing the robbery and demanded cash. The teller complied and then Daniel Amarosa and his twin Cory fled. They were met by police outside the bank and arrested.

    The 21-year-old brothers were also charged with robbing a People's United Bank in Centereach on May 22.

    The Amarosas are scheduled to be arraigned later Thursday. Information on attorneys wasn't immediately available.
