A Brooklyn native has been charged with six bank robberies in Queens since November, a local newspaper reported.
Reuben McLaughlin, 24, robbed the same three banks twice — and made off with more than $20,000 during the heist expedition that ended Tuesday after he robbed a Capital One branch on Forest Ave. in Ridgewood.
Officers from the 104th Precinct on the search for the thief responsible for hitting banks in Queens spotted McLaughlin and recognized him from NYPD wanted posters.
McLaughlin confessed to robbing four Capital One banks and two Astoria Banks, FBI special agent Bradford Price stated in a complaint unsealed in Brooklyn Federal Court, a local newspaper reported.

— Nov. 24, Capital One, 74-11 Metropolitan Ave., $750
— Dec. 9, Capital One, 70-01 Forest Ave., $2,617
— Dec. 30, Astoria Bank, 75-25 Metropolitan Ave., $7,400.
