Man on probation for bank robbery charged with robbing another bank, this time in Roseville

After being released from federal prison for bank robbery, a 58-year-old man from St. Paul was accused on Monday with robbing a Roseville bank last year.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Ramsey County District Court, DNA obtained on a demand letter provided to a teller and on a glove discarded while fleeing the bank on March 8, 2021, allowed authorities to connect Michael Dashon Wise to the robbery.

Wise, who is accused of simple robbery, has a warrant out for his arrest that was issued on Monday.

The criminal complaint claims:

No one will be wounded; simply place the money on the counter in the amounts of $100, $50, $20, and $10; no bait money; and don’t look up, according to two teller at the U.S. Bank, 1101 Larpenteur Ave., who reported the incident to police.

The thief said, “Is that it?” as one cashier gave over the $134 cash she had in her drawer. The second cashier gave him another $502 when he requested money from them.

The guy was seen in security photos with a black glove on his left hand and no glove on his right.

According to a witness, the suspect scaled a fence behind an adjacent apartment complex. Police discovered a black glove beside the fence that was identical to the one in the CCTV photos.

A second witness reported seeing a guy who matched the robber’s description park a red car, presumably a Hyundai, next to the apartment complex and proceed toward a strip mall and a U.S. Bank. Later, the witness observed the same guy scale the fence and sprint for the vehicle.

The guy was seen on surveillance footage rushing out of the strip mall, leaping the fence, and tumbling into the snow.

The black glove that was found and the message were transferred by the police to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for DNA testing. A DNA swab taken from the glove and note had a combination of DNA that matched Wise’s sample on record.

Wise, who at the time of the crime possessed a red Hyundai automobile, matches the physical characteristics included in the bank robber’s description.

Wise was charged with two counts of armed robbery in federal court in November 2016 in connection with the theft of $3,690 from the U.S. Bank on Silver Lake Road in St. Anthony and $5,640 from the Wells Fargo on Central Avenue in Northeast Minneapolis.

In May 2016, he was given a sentence of five years and four months in jail and five years of supervised release after entering a guilty plea to one count. The date of his release from custody was June 10, 2020.
