A Florida man in his 20s who disguised himself as an elderly person is now in custody after he allegedly stole $18,000 from multiple banks, according to an ABC report published Friday.
Abraham Maghen is accused of going to two separate banks on different occasions earlier in May while wearing a mask reminiscent of an elderly man. Like many similar crimes, Maghen allegedly handed a note to the bank teller demanding they hand over money, reports ABC News.
“My grandson is sick. I need $40,000 now,” the alleged thief said during one of the robberies, according to official legal complaint cited by ABC News. “Hurry up. He’s going to die.”
