A Long Island man has been accused of robbing a bank across the street from his house twice in a little more than a week.
Nassau County police said that Melvin Olivo was arrested on robbery charges in connection with the pair of heists at a TD Bank on Long Branch Road in Oceanside in February.
In a news conference Tuesday, authorities say that Olivo hit the bank just 80 steps from of his front door as a crime of opportunity.
In each robbery, Feb. 11 and Feb. 19, Olivo passed a threatening note to tellers at the bank demanding money. No one was hurt either time, and it's not clear if the man had a weapon, but he made off with cash.
Olivo was arrested Monday after authorities say he was spotted walking on the same street as the bank.
Neighbors like David Olivo -- who shares no relation with the suspect -- were befuddled by the crime.
"Very dumb," he said. "That's like no-brainer dumb."
Attorney information for Olivo wasn't immediately available. A knock on his door went unanswered Tuesday afternoon.
