Man arrested in connection with Lynbrook bank robbery

Police say they have caught a man who allegedly robbed a North Lynbrook Capital One bank earlier today.

Authorities say Franke Brugge, of Rockville Centre, robbed the bank while wearing a black curly wig. They say he took off running down Hendrickson Avenue where an off-duty officer allegedly spotted Brugge.

The officer phoned in a description of his truck and what the man was wearing. Brugge was arrested a short time later.
