A lot of things from the 1990s are making a comeback. One of them is a 43-year-old convicted bank robber, police told the Staten Island Advance.
Jack Mannino, out of federal prison since July and supposedly living in Great Kills, is believed to have robbed the Capital One Bank at 7120 New Utrecht Ave. in Brooklyn, on Dec. 29.
He and another man walked in at about 6 p.m., with a weapon out and took over the bank. One of the men jumped over the counter and filled a bag with money. Then they fled down 17th Avenue.
Back in the 1990s, Mannino was connected to 23 bank robberies – including three on Staten Island. He would walk in with a package, and hand a note to the teller saying he’d detonate a bomb in seven seconds if he didn’t get money.
No bomb was ever exploded.
Mannino was white, 5-feet-9 inches tall, and between 170 and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing black wind pants, a gray hooded sweatshirt, and a dark leather jacket, according to the FBI.
The second suspect in the Dec. 29 robbery is described as a white male in his 40s, about 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 220 pounds, who is balding and wears glasses. He wore blue jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt, and a green or beige jacket.
