Police arrested 50-year-old Jon Waulters on Wednesday in connection with seven bank robberies throughout the city, including one in Kips Bay.
Waulters allegedly got away with cash after passing a demand note to a teller inside a Kips Bay Chase Bank at 450 Third Avenue between East 31st and 32nd Streets on March 13 around 1:10 p.m.
Police said that Waulters’ spree began on March 9 on the Upper East Side and he allegedly robbed another bank on the Upper East Side on May 11.
Waulters allegedly conducted two bank robberies on the Upper East Side about 15 minutes apart last Wednesday, reportedly pointing a gun at a teller while passing a demand note inside the HSBC at 1165 Third Avenue at East 68th Street and getting away with cash from a Capital One at 1295 Second Avenue, also at East 68th, at 4:17 p.m. He fled south on Second Avenue but was arrested about a half an hour later at 4:49 p.m.
Waulters was charged with seven counts of robbery.
