A former London firefighter wanted in a 1993 bank heist in Suffolk was arrested Feb. 9, 2012, in the U.S. state of Missouri on firearms charges. Edward "Fast Eddie" John Maher, 56, had been living under his brother's name since the $1.5 million robbery from a bank van. Maher was a member of the London Fire Brigade for 12 years and served as sub-officer at the Euston station in central London. He resigned in 1991, according to Fire Engineering magazine's website.
