In his final robbery on Nov. 8, 2016, Magee entered the S&T Bank on Broadway Bouelvard in Monroeville and said, “I have a bomb.”
When no one acknowledged him, he raised his voice and said, “Excuse me, I have a bomb” and displayed a bag with protruding wires, which were later determined to be Ethernet cables.
Magee fled the scene with more than $78,000 and was later found hiding in a sewer pipeline. He later told police he had some medical issues and needed the money to survive.
