A man suspected of robbing 10 Honolulu banks and described as walking with a waddle was charged in federal court on Wednesday.
Wallace J. Silva Jr. was charged by criminal complaint for multiple bank robberies occurring Dec. 2 to Dec. 27. He was arrested on Tuesday.
Silva is also known as Wally Silva, Walter Spinot, Walter Silver, Robert Burrows and Adam Richards, the complaint said.
The complaint alleges Silva violated supervised release and escaped from Mahoney Hale Residential Reentry Center.
An FBI agent’s affidavit said that in the first robbery on Dec. 2 at the Kapiolani branch of First Hawaiian Bank, Silva threatened the teller in a note saying he had a weapon and was given $1,000.
Tellers described Silva’s walk as a speed walk with a waddle and a wobble.
