“Plaid Bank Robber” Nabbed

Officers from the Henderson and Las Vegas police departments and agents from FBI arrested a Nevada resident whom they say was the man the media dubbed as the “plaid bank robber.”

Maximilian Kvetan, 30, was apprehended and taken into custody Tuesday morning at a house near Hacienda Avenue and Sandhill Road in Henderson. He faces federal charges in connection with three bank robberies committed last month. He confessed to two bank robberies in Henderson and another one in Las Vegas. He denied any involvement in the July 18 robbery of the U.S. Bank branch inside a Smith's grocery store at 830 S. Boulder Highway.

According to reports, in each bank robbery, a man dressed in a plaid shirt handed a note demanding money to a teller. After receiving cash, he took back the note. He did not present any weapon and no one got hurt in any of his capers. Witnesses described the robber as a male Caucasian in his late 20s or early 30s, between 6-foot and 6-foot-2 and weighs around 180 pounds. At the time of the latest robbery, he was seen wearing a baseball cap, a blue and white plaid shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes. Police say Kvetan fit the description.

The amounts involved in the robberies have not yet been disclosed.
