COPY-Band-Aid Bandit ordered to give up booty

Associated Press - June 12, 2007 2:24 PM ET

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The so-called Band-Aid Bandit and his sidekick have to give up their guns, bank accounts and more than $500,000 in cash.

Rafael Rondon and Emeregildo Roman were convicted in April of conspiring to rob banks across west Florida and face as much as 100 years in federal prison when they are sentenced June 29th.

Rondon got his nickname because he often wore a bandage to cover a distinctive mole on his face. Authorities said he was responsible for heists at 39 banks from Sarasota to Gainesville from 2000 through 2006, taking nearly one million dollars. The pair were prosecuted for six robberies.

The federal judge granted prosecution motions seeking the defendants' property, including half a million dollars in proceeds from the six robberies.
