A Delaware County man was arrested Wednesday after authorities said he robbed a bank in his neighborhood twice and used the money to pay property taxes, put new windows in his house, and fund a trip to Atlantic City.
David Federowicz, 39, of Marcus Hook, was arrested without incident, District Attorney Jack Whelan said in a statement. He was charged with robbery, theft, and receiving stolen property.
According to court documents, Federowicz robbed the Sovereign Bank in Marcus Hook in January and September 2011, stealing more than $14,000. He was questioned at the time but told police he would not talk without an attorney. In January 2012, Carol Miller, who lived with him, told police Federowicz confided in her that he robbed the bank but threatened to "take her to the basement, kill her and cut her up, and throw lye on her" if she talked to police, according to the affidavit of probable cause. Federowicz was ordered by the court to submit 25 handwritten samples of the statement "Give me all the money in the register and no one will get hurt" to investigators for forensic analysis.
