Harrisburg Man Pleads Guilty To 14 Bank Robberies

HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that a Harrisburg man has pled guilty before United States District Court Judge Sylvia H. Rambo in Harrisburg to committing 14 bank robberies in four central Pennsylvania counties.

According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, Andre Mosley, age 48, of Harrisburg, pled guilty to robbing 14 financial institutions in Dauphin, Cumberland, Franklin and York Counties between late 2014 and February 2015. The total loss is estimated at approximately $52,295. Mosely has agreed to make restitution.

The institutions that were robbed and the amounts stolen are as follows:

$1,540, Members First Federal Credit Union, Strawberry Square, Harrisburg; $2,900, Patriot Federal Credit Union, Chambersburg; $950, Fulton Bank, 200 N. 3rd Street, Harrisburg; $3,495, Fulton Bank, 1429 N. 3rd Street, Harrisburg; $1,930, PNC Bank, Carlisle; $3,000, Members 1st Federal Credit Union, Carlisle; $7,790, Citizens Bank, Highspire; $1,920, M&T Bank, Harrisburg; $14,480, Fulton Bank, Hummelstown; $4,670, Santander Bank, Red Lion;  $4,250, Northwest Savings Bank, York; and  $5,370, Mid-Penn Bank, Harrisburg.

The case was investigated by the Harrisburg Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Crime Task Force, the Harrisburg Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police and local and municipal police departments in the communities where the financial institutions were located. Assistant United States Attorney William A. Behe prosecuted the case.

A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

The maximum penalty under federal law is 20 years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant's educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.
