Aaron Honaker Is Accused of Bank Robbery
According to allegations in the complaint affidavit, Honaker “followed a consistent approach during the six robbery attempts, two of which were successful: Honaker would enter each bank alone, walk up to a teller window, and ask the teller for assistance in making a withdrawal. Honaker would pass a note to the bank teller that contained hand-written instructions and warnings,” authorities said.
The warnings included, “[d]on’t touch the alarm or call the police,” “empty all of your $50s and $100s and put it in an envelope,” and “[k]eep calm, and give me all the money in the drawer, I have a gun,” the Department of Justice says.
FBI Miami “issued law enforcement bulletins containing descriptions and bank surveillance images of the robber,” the DOJ alleges. According to the complaint, on October 20, officers “spotted a man matching the FBI bulletin descriptions who appeared to be casing the area around a Coral Gables bank. Officers approached the man and identified him as Honaker.”
