NEW YORK (PIX11) - A prolific, disguise-wearing robber has boosted his last bank -- thanks to a Mary Murphy Mystery profile, police said.

Dorren Singh, 26, was the alleged bank robber profiled in a Mary Murphy Mystery earlier this month.  He's accused of robbing 14 banks since January and making off with more than $30,000.

The NYPD says that 10 days after PIX11's report Singh robbed a TD Bank at 329 First Avenue, on August 16th. But police recovered a piece of evidence at the most recent crime scene that led them to Dorren Singh in Harlem on Thursday, August 21st.

PIX 11 aired the first, exclusive surveillance footage of a man identified as Dorren Singh in the Chambers Street and West Broadway subway station, allegedly ditching his sunglasses-and-hat disguise in a trash can, after robbing the Capital One bank upstairs. This was after his 11th alleged heist, back in April.

Singh, 26, allegedly targeted multiple banks in midtown and lower Manhattan but police say he also hit one bank in Queens and one in the Bronx.

Singh had previous arrests for drug possession and trespassing and now faces far more serious charges for robbing 14 banks.
