BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - A sharply-dressed bank robbery suspect will be turning in his pinstripes for prison stripes.
Boynton Beach police say Andrew Wright of Palm Beach Gardens turned himself in Sunday after he was confronted by his own father.
Police say Gary Wright saw surveillance photos of the robbery, which were posted on an internet news site, and recognized them as his 18 year old son.
The heist happened Friday at a Bank of America branch at 105 N. Congress Avenue in Boynton Beach.
Police say their suspect handed the teller a note and showed off a silver and black handgun.
In one surveillance photo you can see him stuffing what appears to be a stack of cash into his coat. In another photo he's seen holding a revolver.
An alleged accomplice of Wright was also arrested in connection with the robbery.
Police say the parents of Michael Jeczalik said they saw their son and Andrew Wright pen a bank robbery note at their house Friday. They also told police that they saw Wright leave the house wearing a pinstriped suit and hat.
Detectives say Jeczalik, who is 24, told them that he gave Wright the suit and gun for the robbery. After the heist Jeczalik says Wright gave him several hundred dollars.
Detectives also say Jeczalik said the gun used in the crime was hidden under a living room couch. That's where crime scene technicians found it.
Both Jeczalik and Wright are now in federal custody.
