A serial bank robber who allegedly struck locations in Westchester and New Jersey could be extradited to Greenburgh after being apprehended attempting to target a TD Bank branch in Englewood, Greenburgh Police announced on Tuesday.
Last month , a joint surveillance operation conducted by the Greenburgh, Mount Pleasant, Hasbrough Heights and Fort Lee Police Departments - with an assist from the FBI - led to the arrest of Eddy Cruz of the Bronx, who is a suspect in a Scarsdale bank robbery and White Plains gas station robbery on back-to-back days dating back to last month.
Cruz, 41, was arrested last month in New Jersey. He had previously been implemented in the robberies of several bank branches in the tri-state area over the last few years.
According to Greenburgh Police Lt. Frank Farina, Cruz is currently in custody in New Jersey and is awaiting extradition back to Westchester for pending charges for the Feb. 9 robbery of a Shell station in White Plains and Feb. 10 TD Bank robbery in Scarsdale. A date for extradition has not yet been set.
