There’s a growing rap sheet against the “commuter robber.”


Olivier Fanby, 19,  will be charged by Harrison police in two robberies, and one each in the village and town of Mamaroneck, and in New Rochelle.


Famby is being held without bail. He was expected to be in Mamaroneck Town Court on Monday and in Harrision Town Court today.  As LoHud reports:


Famby reportedly  told Pelham detectives that he had planned to rob someone at the Larchmont station around 5 a.m. Friday, but didn’t see anybody who looked promising, so he drove to Pelham. He parked on Corlies Avenue, in a no-overnight parking zone.


Sgt. Christopher Casucci saw the parked car about 5:20 a.m. and knew it hadn’t been there earlier, Benefico said.


While he was writing a ticket, he noticed someone in the car and pulled up to talk to the driver. When he got out to investigate, he noticed a gun on the floor and black gloves.
