Heavy D Bandit Caught
(2008-07-23)
(wgvu) - DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - A man suspected of several bank robberies
in the Detroit area acknowledges he's the guy known as the "Heavy
D Bandit."
The disclosure was made in an FBI affidavit filed Wednesday to
support a bank-robbery charge against Alvin Murray.
Murray was arrested Tuesday outside a Key Bank in Dearborn with
a note in his pocket demanding money.
The FBI says Murray waived his right to remain silent and
confessed to being the "Heavy D Bandit," a reference to his
weight and the letter on his cap. He's charged with robbing a Fifth
Third Bank in Dearborn but is a suspect in others.
Murray appeared in federal court Wednesday and will remain in
custody to await another hearing Thursday. A message seeking
comment was left with defense attorney Rita Chastang.
