SPRINGDALE, Ohio -- A Florida man police say wore an elaborate mask to rob several banks and businesses in the Tri-State over the past month is behind bars on a $3 million bond.
Conrad Zdzierak, 30, was arraigned Thursday morning on six counts of aggravated robbery in Hamilton County court.
Acting on a tip, officers from several departments served a search warrant at the Extended Stay America Hotel at 320 Glensprings Drive in Springdale Wednesday afternoon where they arrested Zdzierak.
Officers discovered a red dye pack from a bank had exploded inside a vehicle that belongs to Zdzierak.
Police then tried to enter Zdzierak's room, but were encountered by a dog that bit one of the officers, prompting one of them to fire their gun.
Once inside, officers discovered evidence, including a Hollywood-style mask linking Zdzierak to six robberies.
"The suspect seen in the surveillance photographs and that we were looking for, we believed to be an African American male. The suspect was actually a male, white, who was wearing an elaborate disguise," said Lieutenant Michael Mathis with the Springdale Police Department.
Springdale police says they have never seen such an elaborate mask.
Police say Zdzierak committed five of the robberies last Friday, April 9.
Investigators say Zdzierak would hand a note to an employee indicating he had a gun and demanded cash.
According to police, Zdzierak has been living in the Springdale hotel for the last year.
The robberies Zdzierak is charged with are:
- March 5 - Chaco Bank, 1143 Smiley, Forest Park, Ohio
- April 9 - Key Bank, 8457 Winton Road, Springfield Township, Ohio
- April 9 - Fifth Third Bank, 10595 Springfield Pike, Woodlawn, Ohio
- April 9 - Key Bank, 11355 Princeton Pike, Springdale, Ohio
- April 9 - CVS Pharmacy, 11601 Springfield Pike, Springdale, Ohio
- April 9 - Franklin Savings, 1100 West Kemper Road, Forest Park, Ohio
