NEW YORK — The heroin-addict bank robber who became one of the most-wanted men in New York for a spree that began around Christmas had grenades inside his Queens home, sources revealed yesterday.

Marat Mikhaylich, 35 - dubbed the "Holiday Bandit" - was captured Tuesday after the NYPD's high-tech license-plate readers, along with some old-fashioned detective work by the FBI, led cops to his stolen getaway car, the sources said.
