Alabama man charged in Cary bank robbery

Posted December 1, 2010

— Police arrested an Alabama man on Wednesday in connection with the Monday robbery of an RBC Bank branch in Cary.

Joseph Campomenosi, 40, of Daphne, Ala., was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and four counts of second-degree kidnapping.

A man entered the bank, at 2920 Jones Franklin Road, shortly after noon Monday, confronted employees with a black semiautomatic handgun and demanded that money be put into a garbage bag, police said.

The robber, who was described as having a "messy comb-over," then fled in a white sedan with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No one was injured in the robbery.

The case remains under investigation, and no details were released regarding how police linked Campomenosi to the robbery.

    Good job Cary PD and SBI, FBI and any others who helped catch this low life. Lock him up and NEVER let him out!!! If he get's out, he'll be committing crimes within 24 hours.

    Another sign of the times. Just wanted to get free room and board, 3 meals a day, roof over his head, didn't want to work, play basketball as much as he wants, watch TV, hang out with the guys, and not pay any bills. All on the public dime.

    Wonder how they caught him. I figured he wasn't local since he didn't even try to hide his face.
