A 33-year-old man suspected of robbing four Pittsburgh-area banks was apprehended at a Penn Hills residence on Tuesday afternoon.

Officials from the U.S. Marshals Service said Joseph Francis Guiney, was arrested around 10 a.m. on Nov. 13 at a home on the 1000 block of Milltown Road in east Penn Hills.

Marshals said Guiney attempted to retreat into a back bedroom but was ultimately taken into custody without incident.

Immediately prior to the arrest, fugitive task force officers recovered U.S. currency tainted in dye believed to be associated with the robberies, according to the U.S. Marshal press release.

Guiney was transported to the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police headquarters for processing. He is suspected in the March 27 robbery of First National Bank in Squirrel Hill, the Oct. 31 robbery of First Niagara Bank in Squirrel Hill and two additional bank robberies in the same Pittsburgh neighborhood.
