And then, early this year, the string of robberies suddenly stopped.Yesterday, the FBI explained why: The man they sought in connection with the 19-month bank robbery spree had been sitting in a Maryland prison in Hagerstown, serving a one-year sentence for malicious destruction.A correctional officer at the Maryland Correction Training Center identified one of the inmates as Pepe from a bank surveillance photo the FBI had circulated in the state prison system.

Roberto Pagan-Franco didn't have a bank account for decades. His employer paid him in cash or with a check that the Baltimore resident took to a check-cashing store. A few years ago he lost his job after a severe illness and for a time was homeless. Not exactly the type of customer you'd expect a big bank to court. But Pagan-Franco enrolled in a PNC Bank program that targets consumers who otherwise might be shut out of the banking system. And today, the 54-year-old has checking and savings accounts at PNC and is in the process of getting a credit card.
