Tenn. man arrested in GN bank robbery

Nassau County police have arrested a 70-year-old Tennessee man in connection with the Sept. 27 armed robbery of the Chase Bank in the Village of Great Neck.

Raymond Young, a Memphis resident, was arrested Sunday and charged with robbery in the first degree and criminal use of a firearm in the first degree.

Young allegedly entered the bank at 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 27, showed tellers a handgun and demanded cash. Six employees and one other customer were in the bank at the time of the stickup, according to police.

Young allegedly then left the building and walked south on Middle Neck Road.

The robbery sparked a search for a suspect, who was described by witnesses but not captured until Sunday, when Young was arrested by Nassau County Police with assistance from the Lake Success Police Department

Great Neck has been the location of other bank robberies in recent months. 

James, Pope, 35 was arrested in April and charged with a February robbery of the TD Bank in Great Neck, one of 10 TD Bank robberies that took place across Nassau last winter and spring.
