Police: Man wanted in ATM robbery found in jail

PINELLAS PARK — While police were circulating a video of him punching a woman at a drive-up ATM, Steven Neidl was already in jail.

Police said Neidl, 18, broke into a home in the 8000 block of 53rd Way N. May 26, just an hour after he tried to rob a woman at a Bank of America ATM.

At the ATM, at 5100 Park Blvd., Neidl approached a woman and demanded money. When she refused, he struck her multiple times in the side of her head, then lunged through her window, grabbed her purse and ran away.

About 6:45 p.m., the homeowner on 53rd Way N reported that a man broke into his house through his garage door. Neidl encountered the man and his 16-year-old son, then ran out of the home.

He was later found in the 7900 block of 54th Street N.

Neidl was arrested May 26 and charged with attempted burglary of an occupied dwelling. Pinellas Park Police yesterday added charges of strong arm robbery. Neidl was held in the Pinellas County Jail on $18,500 bail.

When investigators interviewed Neidl, he told them the last thing he remembered was smoking "spice" in a park and being chased down the street.
