A 33-year-old Yorktown man was arrested by Yorktown Police Monday night for allegedly robbing TD Bank in the Jefferson Valley Mall earlier in the day.
Mark Sindaco of Mead Street was charged with robbery in the first degree, a Class B felony, after police received an anonymous tip and located him at his home about 10 p.m. He was taken into custody without incident.
Police had been searching for a white male in his 30s, between 5’7” and 5’10” with a slim build, wearing a tan colored baseball cap and dark colored Nautica jacket, who entered the bank about 4:52 p.m. and produced a handwritten note to one of the tellers stating he had a gun and demanded cash.
The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash to Sindaco, who left the bank and was last seen heading east on Bank Road in the area of Toys R Us. K-9 units from the Yorktown Police Department and Westchester County Department of Public Safety were utilized in an attempt to track Sindaco, but the scent was lost on Bank Road.
No weapon was displayed during the robbery and no one was injured. Several employees and at least one customer were in the bank at the time of the incident. Bank security cameras captured several photographs of Sindaco, which were circulated to the media and led to his arrest.
