According to Austin, Texas police, an alleged bank robber was identified and arrested last Friday due to him using a dockless e-scooter as a getaway vehicle. 19-year-old Luca Mangiarano was charged with robbery after allegedly robbing the BBVA Compass bank. According to a bank employee, Mangiarano entered the bank, walked up to her station, and handed her a note. The note read, “This is a robbery. Please give me all your 100s and 50s in an envelope and everything will be ok.” The victim told officers that she was afraid of what he might do, so she complied and gave him the money. Another bank employee, who was unaware of the robbery at the time, told investigators he saw who he believed to be the suspect leave the bank and hop on a dockless e-scooter. A surveillance video from a nearby business showed a man matching Mangiarano's description riding away from the bank. Officers were able to identify the scooter being used as a Jump by Uber scooter. APD sent a subpoena to Uber requesting the account information used for the scooter used and were able to identify Mangiarano as well as his phone number and email address. (
