MMA Fighter Sergio Da Silva Arrested for Robbing Bank For $50K
MMA fighter Sergio Da Silva, who apparently moonlights as a criminal during his off-time, will have plenty of time to think about what he did after he got himself arrested on Thursday.
Silva, who last fought at “Bellator 180: Sonnen vs. Silva“, is accused of robbing a bank in Queens, NY.
“Law enforcement sources tell us … the 31-year-old is accused of single-handedly busting into a Citibank in Queens on August 24th and making off with thousands of dollars in cash.
One source tells us the loot is estimated at around $50,000.
We’re told cops believe it was Da Silva who put on a ski mask and jumped over a glass counter in the teller area during the incident. He allegedly claimed to have had a gun and said he would shoot people.
We’re told cops were able to identify Da Silva by his fingerprints at the scene — and tracked him down and arrested him Thursday morning. He lives right around the corner from the bank (same street). “
