Criminal Robs Bronx Bank, Blows loot in AC

A robber robbed more  a dozen banks in New York City and lost all the loot at a roulette table in Atlantic City, originally reported by the New York Post:

Dorren Singh, 26, allegedly stole about $32,000 from 12 banks in Manhattan and one in Queens and The Bronx, the sources said.

He caught a bus at Port Authority Bus Terminal and rode it down to Atlantic City “to meet girls and have fun,” one law-enforcement source said.

“He met some girls and hung out. And he slept over in one of the hotels.”

But Singh had far less luck at the roulette table at Bally’s casino. It nearly wiped him out.

Singh used the rest of the money to buy cheap clothes and food, according to the sources.

Meanwhile, detectives in New York developed information on the case and named Singh a suspect.

When Singh returned to his home in East Harlem Thursday, investigators were waiting for him and placed him in handcuffs.

Singh was charged with robbery for the 12 Manhattan bank heists, and is awaiting charges on the two other thefts.

Singh has one conviction for criminal sale of narcotics in 2009. He also has been arrested for minor offenses, including criminal trespass and turnstile jumping.

A source said the casinos where Singh played and lost are not responsible for repaying the money.
