Police identify man killed in West Palm Beach shooting

Man wanted in bank robberies across state captured


UPDATE, 2 p.m.: A man suspected of bank robberies in at least three different cities was captured earlier today, according to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.

Anthony Carpino, 45, was arrested in a Burger King in Daytona Beach after law enforcement officers with the Martin sheriff’s office, the FBI, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and Daytona Beach Police tracked him to his hotel, according to the Martin sheriff’s office Facebook page.

Officials believe Carpino is responsible for the robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank in Palm City on Tuesday, along with several other robberies throughout Florida.

Martin sheriff’s officials say tips about Carpino began to flow in after his photo was posted on the department’s Facebook page, with one tip leading law enforcement to the hotel Carpino was staying at in Daytona.

ORIGINAL STORY: The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man suspected of bank robberies in Palm City, Palm Bay and Daytona Beach.

Anyone who sees or can identify the man or who knows anything about the robbery is asked to call 911 or the FBI at (754) 703-2000.
