MERIDAN, Conn. (WTNH) – A man with a history of robbing banks admitted in a Hartford courtroom today that he’s guilty of robbing yet another bank.
Court documents say on September 22, 2014, 58 year old Michael Maslar wore a pillowcase with holes cut into it over his head as he held up the TD Bank on East Main Street in Meridan. The documents show he said he had a gun and demanded employees give him cash in $50 and $100 dollar bills and he got away with more than $5,600. He was arrested a short time later.
Maslar will be sentenced on June 2, 2015 and faces a maximum of 20 years in prison. He has a criminal history that includes two prior federal convictions for bank robbery, as well as convictions for involuntary manslaughter and assault.
