Police say he's been robbing banks in Monroe and Orleans Counties for weeks and even threatened a teller and a bank customer with what looked like a bomb.Now a Greece man is in jail.

Albion Police say they caught him red-handed with $18,000 along with the driver of his get-away car.

Jeremy Rothmund and Elyse Huffer are both from Greece and they're in the Orleans County Jail.

Police say they robbed the Bank of America in the Village of Albion late Tuesday afternoon. The teller signaled to a drive thru customer what was happening and investigators say that customer confronted the suspect.

Police arrested Rothmund and Huffer near an apartment complex in Holley. The explosive device was a fake.

Police say Rothmund was also involved in two bank robberies in Greece and another robbery in Monroe County.

The two are due back in court next week.
