ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Derrick Stubbs, 54, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of bank robbery, was sentenced to serve 84 months in prison by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Eldridge, who is handling the case, stated that on December 5, 2017, the defendant attempted to rob the Chase Bank located at 560 Monroe Avenue in Rochester, NY. On that same date, the defendant robbed the Summit Federal Credit Union at 1660 Monroe Avenue in Brighton, NY. Two days later, on December 7, 2017, Stubbs robbed the Chase Bank located at 920 Holt Road in Webster, NY.

During the robberies, the defendant handed a note to a bank employee demanding money. The notes contained statements to the teller such as “make it fast and don’t try nothing,” “don’t try anything funny,” and “no die pack and no games.”

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert; the Rochester Area Major Crimes Task Force and the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Chief La’Ron D. Singletary; the Brighton Police Department, under the direction of Mark Henderson; and the Webster Police Department, under the direction of Chief Joseph Rieger.
