For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

BOSTON – A Boston man has been sentenced for robbing a TD Bank branch in Cambridge.

Jamall Copeland, 49, was sentenced on March 1, 2023 by U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs to 28 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In December 2022, Copeland pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery.

On April 27, 2022, an unknown male – later identified as Copeland – entered the TD Bank located at 1270 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge at approximately 1:45 p.m. and handed the teller a demand note that stated, “Give up all Hundreds! AN 50's Robbery!” Copeland obtained $1,455 in cash and fled the scene. Following the robbery, law enforcement recovered a fingerprint from the demand note that matched the known fingerprint of Copeland.

United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins; Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division; and Cambridge Police Chief Christine Elow made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney David G. Tobin of Rollins’ Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
