80-year-old man arrested for masked bank robbery

By New York Post

(NEW YORK POST) – Swiss authorities say they have apprehended an 80-year-old man on allegations he robbed a bank near the city of Lucerne.

Lucerne canton (state) prosecutors said Tuesday the man, who was arrested the previous day in the Lucerne area, had confessed to the December masked robbery of the bank in Meggen. The suspect’s name wasn’t released in line with privacy laws and further details weren’t immediately available.

At the time of the robbery, police released a photo of the suspect showing him wearing a black mask, clutching a blue plastic bag of money as he robbed the bank before he fled on foot.

They said it wasn’t clear if he was armed, and did not say how much money he got away with.
