Nicholas Landolfi was arrested without incident at his residence Monday evening. He is charged with armed robbery, grand theft and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail, where he was being held Monday night on $205,000 bail.
Volusia County sheriff’s deputies, investigators and analysts made quick work of an armed bank robbery Monday afternoon in Deltona, identifying a suspect within roughly two hours and putting him in handcuffs.
The call about the robbery came in at 3:54 p.m. at 892 Deltona Blvd. The suspect, a tall, white male wearing a gray shirt, white hat and sunglasses, was armed with a handgun. He escaped the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.
Deputies working closely with members of the Sheriff’s Office’s new Volusia County Crime Center identified 36-year-old Nicholas Landolfi (DOB 7/20/1980) as the tall man in sunglasses who robbed the SunTrust Bank at 892 Deltona Blvd.
Landolfi covered a tattoo on his arm in an effort to conceal his identity. But he couldn’t conceal his height — his arrest report lists him at 6 feet, 6 inches tall — and investigators and analysts with the Crime Center were able to match him to his photo in the state’s driver and vehicle information database.
The Sheriff’s Office also received citizen tips identifying the suspect as Landolfi, and two eyewitnesses confirmed he was the suspect. One of those witnesses had taken note of Landolfi when he entered the bank because he was “shaking and acting nervous like he was going to rob the business,” investigators wrote.
