Police said Cornell Neilly, 21, who is accused of receiving more than $8,500 in 14 bank robberies stretching back to April, was seen wearing the Burberry clothes during two heists and told police after his Tuesday arrest he took the cash to support his shopping addiction, the New York Post reported Thursday.
"He used the money to buy expensive clothes, $400 sneakers, a Burberry shirt," a police source told the Post.
Police said Neilly, who allegedly committed the crimes by handing demand notes to bank tellers, was charged with the 14 bank robberies Wednesday. They said he has previously served two prison sentences for dealing drugs.
