A serial bank robber that robbed on July 20, 2012, the Indus American Bank, located inside the Pathmark, Troy Hills Shopping Center,  gained attention for being well dressed has dodged a state prison term.

David G. Carroccia, 29, of Warren was sentenced to five years’ special probation under Morris County’s Drug Court program. But the 29-year-old was warned that he could be sent to prison for as long as 50 years if he violated his probation.

He’s was also implicated in the July 30 robbery of a PNC Bank, Mount Olive, the August 10 robbery of a Capital One Bank, Lincoln Park, and the August 23 robbery of a Boiling Springs Savings Bank, Lincoln Park. Authorities also believe he tried to rob a PNC bank in Kinnelon on August 28.

County prosecutors had sought an eight-year sentence, citing Carroccia’s three previous arrests and his “potential ties” to Florida that they claimed made him a flight risk.

Carroccia pleaded guilty in March to four counts of bank robbery: in addition to the Indus American Bank robbery, the July 30 robbery of a PNC Bank, Mount Olive, the August 10 robbery of a Capital One Bank, Lincoln Park, and the August 23 robbery of a Boiling Springs Savings Bank, Lincoln Park,  and one count of attempted bank robbery, as he tried to rob a PNC bank in Kinnelon on August 28. In each case, the robber was dressed in a suit jacket.

Carroccia says his heroin addiction caused his actions.
