Pennsylvania man suspected of robbing Hawaiian bank

WAILEA, Hawaii — Police have identified a man suspected of robbing a bank on Maui.

Police say 33-year-old Michael Flocco of Pennsylvania, who is homeless, was arrested Thursday and taken to the Wailuku Police Station for processing.

Flocco was arrested two hours after a bank branch of First Hawaiian Bank in Wailea was robbed Thursday morning. Police say the bank robber demanded that money be placed in a paper bag and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. He left on a silver moped that was later spotted by police near the Polo Beach Club.

Maui police say a search warrant was being obtained to look for the bank’s money in the moped and among Flocco’s belongings.
