Man who Robbed West Mifflin PNC Bank Wearing a Pirates Hat and McDonald’s Uniform Shirt Will Spend 4+ Years in Prison

PITTSBURGH, PA – A former resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court four years and two months (50 months) in prison and three years’ supervised release on his conviction of bank robbery, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

Senior United States District Judge Donetta W. Ambrose imposed the sentence on Barry Daniels, 30, who committed the bank robbery while wearing a McDonald’s uniform shirt. Daniels was formerly employed by the fast-food restaurant.

According to information presented to the court, on or about September 12, 2018, Daniels, wearing a Pirates baseball hat and a black buttoned-up McDonalds’ shirt, entered the PNC Bank at 4917 Homeville Road, West Mifflin, PA 15122, handed the teller a deposit slip with a note on the back, which read: "Give me all of your 100s and 50s." Surveillance video, from the bank, shows Daniels arrive at the bank, driving a black vehicle, enter the bank and rob it, and then exit the bank, returning to the same vehicle which he then drove out of the parking lot. The Court was further advised that Daniels took $505.00 from the bank teller.

Assistant United States Attorney Rebecca L. Silinski prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the West Mifflin Police Department conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Daniels, and were assisted by the Turtle Creek Police Department in apprehending the defendant.
