“Bomb” Bank Robber Arrested in Airmont

The FBI on Tuesday captured a 29-year-old Spring Valley man who they said robbed banks in Pomona, Park Ridge, NJ and elsewhere by claiming to have a bomb, the Daily Voice reported.

Yosef Ziegler was taken into custody in Airmont early Tuesday by a team of law enforcement officers and agents led by the bureau from the jurisdictions where the banks were robbed, official sources said.

Ziegler is accused of making off with $32,000 from an Oritani Bank branch on Kinderkamack Road in Park Ridge this past April according to officials, after claiming to have a bomb in what looked like a pizza delivery bag.
