Armed Bank Robber Sentenced to 155 Months in Prison

     TUCSON, Ariz. – On Dec. 19, 2016, Robert Mark Baron, 54, of Tucson, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Cindy K. Jorgenson to a total of 155 months in prison.  Baron had previously pleaded guilty to armed bank robbery.

     On Feb. 23, 2015, Baron entered a Bank of America in Tucson, Ariz., brandishing what was later determined to be a fake Uzi-style assault gun.  He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, but was captured the next day by Tucson police officers.

     At the time of the robbery, Baron was also on federal supervised release for unlawfully carrying a shotgun in Utah.  Baron received an additional 30 months’ imprisonment for violating his Utah supervision and the two sentences were ordered to be served consecutively, resulting in a total term of 155 months of imprisonment.

     The investigation in this case was conducted by the Tucson Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution was handled by Micah Schmit, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Tucson.
