A 33-year-old homeless man from Pennsylvania has been charged with robbing the Wailea branch of First Hawaiian Bank of nearly $2,000 on Thursday.

Michael Flocco was charged second-degree robbery. His bail was set at $20,000.

Maui police found $1,880.00 of which $1,550.00 was confirmed to belong to the First Hawaiian Bank in the suspect’s mo-ped and property Thursday.

The suspect approached a bank teller Thursday morning with a note demanding that money be placed in a paper bag, police said. No weapon was seen, and the suspect then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money and got onto a silver mo-ped heading west down Wailea Iki Drive from Wailea Iki Place.

About 10:30 a.m., Kihei patrol officers were making checks in the Wailea/Makena area and found a silver mo-ped off Old Makena Road near the Polo Beach Club matching the description of the one used in the robbery, police said.

Officers then found a man matching the description of the suspect. The man told police that the mo-ped belonged to him. After the man was detained, police sent a digital photo to the bank, and staffers identified the man as the robber.
