An Amityville man, who cops allege was the getaway driver at a Monday afternoon bank robbery, has been arrested for his alleged role in the stickup of a TD Bank branch in Mineola, Nassau County police said April 8.

Nathaniel Kelly, 60, was awaiting arraignment Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead after being charged with second-degree robbery.

Detectives said Kelly was driving the getaway car when he took another man – who has not been caught – to the TD Bank branch on Jericho Turnpike in Mineola to allegedly commit a robbery.

Police said the unidentified second suspect walked into the bank and passed a note to a teller, while also making “verbal demands for cash.” After the teller passed him an undisclosed amount of money, he allegedly hopped back into the car, that Kelly was driving, and the duo took off, cops said.

The not-yet-apprehended suspect, who is described as being between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 with a slim build and dark complexion, was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, a baseball camp and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
