Turin, March 28 - Police in Italy on Thursday arrested a serial bank robber who took taxis to and from his heists, tipping the cabbies 50 euros after a successful run. Alessandro Montemurno, 36, confessed to eight robberies over the past few days. "I'm homeless and I've been living the life of a drifter lately," Montemurno told police. While he often took cabs to the bank, he sometimes took the train as a getaway after the heist, police said. Montemurno, whose arrest was confirmed by a preliminary investigative magistrate, is also being investigated on charges related to other heists in Turin province in the past months, police said.
