PITTSBURGH - A man has surrendered to police and been jailed on charges that he robbed two Pittsburgh-area banks earlier this month.
Pittsburgh police said 33-year-old Jeffrey Schrott, of Coraopolis surrendered Sunday, after police released surveillance photos of the second robbery on July 13 at a Citizens Bank branch inside the South Side Giant Eagle.
City and Allegheny County police said Schrott confessed to that robbery and another, July 7, at a First Niagara Bank branch in his hometown.
Investigators said Schrott handed the Citizens Bank teller a note that said he had a gun and wanted $100 and $50 bills with no dye pack in the money.
Schrott has a preliminary hearing July 29.
