Michael James Keitz, a convicted felon, is wanted for his alleged involvement in two bank robberies in 2015. On the afternoon of October 2, 2015, a male suspect, later identified as Keitz, entered the M&T Bank located at 1205 Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst, New York. He went to the desk where the bank keeps its banking forms and appeared to fill out a deposit slip. He then entered the teller line and handed a teller a note in which he demanded money and threatened that he had a bomb which he would detonate. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, he left the bank.
On the afternoon of October 9, 2015, a male suspect wearing a light-colored baseball cap, later identified as Keitz, entered the Northwest Savings Bank located at 2513 West State Street in Olean, New York. He went to the desk where the bank keeps its banking forms and appeared to fill out a deposit slip. He then entered the teller line and handed a teller a note in which he demanded money or else the teller would "get shot". After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, he then fled the bank on a bicycle which he had stolen the same day. The stolen bicycle was later recovered.
A federal arrest warrant was issued for Keitz in the United States District Court, Western District of New York, Buffalo, New York, on March 4, 2016, after he was charged with bank robbery.
Thoughts? The problem with a fugitive like Michael Keitz is that even if he's caught, convicted and serves his sentence for the two bank robberies, he will probably resume his criminal behaviour after he gets released. As far as we can tell, he's never bothered to be employed for an extended period of time since the FBI couldn't find out any industries he's worked in. He needs to be caught since bank robbery is still a very serious charge.
