An Atlanta FBI task force has arrested a man suspected in at least three bank robberies in metro Atlanta. David Conn, 30, was arrested on July 14 in Decateur by the FBI-led Atlanta Metropolitan Major Offenders unit, based on investigations by Sandy Springs and Atlanta police. Conn was arrested for a July 1 robbery of a Wachovia bank in North Fulton, the June 25 attempted robbery of a Bank of America in Sandy Springs, and the June 10 robbery of a Wachovia in Atlanta, Sandy Springs spokesman Lt. Steve Rose said.
Sandy Springs and AMMO officers were able to track Conn by a note he used to rob one of the banks which he left at the scene. The note said he had placed a bomb in the building and was demanding money, and when Conn fled, he left the note behind. Because the note had been written on a loan-for-title document from Title Max, investigators were able to form a list of potential subjects through the company, and then were able to identify Conn himself by comparing bank surveillance photos with those of the potential subjects.
Conn is facing charges of criminal attempt to commit armed robbery from Sandy Springs police and two counts of armed robbery by Milton and Atlanta police. Investigative holds have also been placed on Conn by Alpharetta police and Cherokee County. Although the FBI became involved in the case due to the money being federally insured, prosecution will be completely local due to there being no weapons and a note involved in the robberies.
