BUFFALO, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Angelina Kurtz, 20, of Cheektowaga, NY, who was convicted of bank robbery and making a false statement to the FBI, was sentenced to time served, six months of home detention with an ankle bracelet, two years supervised release, and ordered to pay $543.00 to Key Bank in restitution.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan A. Tokash, who prosecuted the case, stated that Kurtz robbed the Key Bank located at 2318 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo. The defendant handed the teller a note demanding $20,000 in cash and threatening the teller that she had a .45 caliber gun with her that she would use if dye packs or alarms disrupted the robbery plot.
Kurtz also made a false statement to investigators after she was arrested.
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Adam S. Cohen.
