BUFFALO, N.Y. – Acting U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Ronald Anthony McCarter, Jr., 25, of Lackawanna, NY, who was convicted of bank robbery, was sentenced to 27 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Brendan T. Cullinane, who handled the case, stated on October 29, 2015, the Key Bank on Broadway Avenue in Lancaster, NY was robbed. An individual entered the bank, approached a teller and passed a note which demanded cash, no dye pack, and no sudden movements. Subsequent investigation identified McCarter as the individual based on bank surveillance photos.


The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction on the part of Special Agent-in-Charge Adam S. Cohen, and the Lancaster Police Department, under the direction of Chief Gerald Gill.
