Yesterday, the FBI arrested a man wanted for a December 2011 Dyker Heights bank robbery. The robbery happened at Capital One bank and the culprit was a seasoned robber. Prior to hitting up the bank, Jack Mannino had recently been released from prison after serving a 10-year-sentence  for a series of  23 robberies back in 1999, according to News 12.

At the time of the robbery, Mannino carried  a box with him and threatened to detonate it in seven seconds if he didn’t get what he wanted. He and an accomplice were able to flee with $5,658 in cash.

Gary Fama, the second man involved in the robbery, had been arrested in March.
