Edward Pemberton AKA the ” Bouquet Bandit ” was arrested by New York City police and is being held on $250,000 bail.
The Bouquet Bandit was armed only with a fresh flower bouquet to conceal his note demanding cash during his $440 bank heist July 15 in Manhattan. The teller complied and the Bouquet Bandit fled on foot, leaving the flower bouquet behind.
Pemberton, who worked in New York City’s flower district, used a potted plant as a prop in a similar take the money and run holdup at another New York bank earlier this month.
The Bouquet Bandit bank robber is suspected of six bank robberies since 2008.
