Serial Bank Robbery Suspect Arrested By Wilmington Police

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, Del. -

Police say they have arrested a man linked to several robberies in Delware.

43- year old Joseph F. Mieluchowski, 43, from Landenberg, PA, surrendered to detectives Thursday. Mieluchowski had been linked to the following seven bank robberies:

PNC Bank, 3840 Kennett Pike, Greenville, June 4, 2009

PNC Bank, 5325A Limestone Road, Wilmington, September 4, 2009

Wilmington Trust, 151 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, January 11, 2010

Wilmington Trust 151 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, March 9, 2010

WSFS Bank, 4401 Concord Pike, Wilmington, August 20, 2010

PNC Bank, 3840 Kennett Pike, Greenville, June 23, 2011

PNC Bank, 5325A Limestone Road, Wilmington, July 6, 2011

In all seven of the robberies, Mieluchowski was armed with a handgun and demanded cash from multiple tellers. As the robberies continued, Mieluchowski became even more violent, often threatening bank customers.

The robbery trend ended in 2011, but detectives continued to work strongly to identify the suspect. After receiving a tip in late 2013, detectives were able to identify Mieluchowski and on June 18, they obtained a warrant of his arrest.

Mieluchowski was charged with sixteen counts of robbery first degree, two counts of attempted robbery first degree, one count of kidnapping second degree, eighteen counts of aggravated menacing and seven counts of wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony.
