Man Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison For Syracuse Credit Union Robbery

Robbed the Summit Federal Credit Union in Syracuse in January 2015

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Ronald Reid, 52, of Rochester, New York, was sentenced on August 27, 2015 to three years in prison for robbery of a credit union in Syracuse, New York, announced United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian, Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Andrew Vale, and Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler. United States District Judge David N. Hurd also sentenced Reid to three years of supervised release following his jail term and restitution.

The charge stemmed from the robbery of the Summit Federal Credit Union, 1400 Erie Boulevard East, Syracuse, New York, on January 26, 2015. On that day, Reid walked into the credit union and presented a note which read, "Give me the money." After the teller complied, Reid left with $240.00 before Syracuse police arrived. He was arrested the following day in Utica, New York.

This case was investigated by the Syracuse Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from the Utica Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael F. Perry.
