Youngstown man is suspect in second bank robbery

Posted: Updated:
A Youngstown man suspected of robbing a Girard bank on Saturday has also been charged in connection with the holdup of a Boardman Township bank.

Boardman police issued a warrant for 42-year-old Robert Naples, charging him with aggravated robbery.

Investigators believe Naples was the man who wrote a note demanding cash from a teller at the Huntington Bank branch inside the Giant Eagle store at 476 Boardman Canfield road on Friday evening.

According to a police report, the note was written on a deposit slip and read, "I got a gun. Give me 100's, 50's, 20's Now".  The teller never saw the suspect brandish a firearm.

Authorities say that the thief walked out the front door of the store with $970 cash.

Girard police arrested Naples for a similar crime the following day.  A suspect demanding hundred and fifty dollar bills robbed the Charter One Bank on State Street at around 11:00 a.m. Saturday.

Naples, who was arrested after a police pursuit shortly afterwards, was arraigned in Girard Municipal Court on Monday.

Naples is due back in Girard court on May 7. No date has been set for his appearance in Mahoning County Court in Boardman.
