Quincy Man Sentenced for Four Bank Robberies

BOSTON – A Quincy man was sentenced today in federal court in Boston for robbing multiple banks throughout the Boston area.

Kyle P. Nathan, 28, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock to 42 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In March 2017, Nathan pleaded guilty to four counts of bank robbery. 

In February and March 2016, an individual robbed the East Boston Savings Bank in both South Boston and Dorchester, a branch of the Santander bank in Chelmsford, and a branch of the Citizens Bank, also in Chelmsford. Due to similarities in the robberies and the physical description of the perpetrator, law enforcement suspected that the same individual was involved in each of the robberies. After the fourth robbery, Nathan was arrested wearing the same clothes the suspect was identified as wearing during all four robberies.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb; Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Colonel Richard D. McKeon, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; and Chelmsford Police Chief James Spinney made the announcement today.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Weinreb’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
