FBI takes over Bucks County bank robbery case

DOYLESTOWN The FBI has taken over the case against a man who allegedly robbed three Bucks County banks in one day, taking a cab to each branch.

Luke Radick, 26, of Howell, N.J., already spent time in federal prison for attempting to rob a bank in Monroe County in 2009, according to court documents.

Then, on Aug. 29, 2013, he tried to knock over bank branches in Bensalem, Morrisville and Yardley, police said. The bank tellers in Bensalem and Morrisville, however, backed away from Radick after he passed them a note demanding money, prompting him to leave empty handed, police said.

Radick successfully robbed only one bank that day, in Yardley, making off with $105, police said. He was arrested shortly after his alleged spree.

Radick was originally charged with several counts of bank robbery by the Bucks County District Attorney's Office. He was transferred to federal custody on Tuesday after he was indicted on federal charges. He has a history of drug abuse, according to court records from his first bank robbery.
