ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Officials say a man from the Bronx has been found guilty in Albany Supreme Court for robbing a bank back in the summer.

According to officials 42-year-old Patrick Cloonan was found guilty after a jury trial of one count of robbery in the second degree, one count of grand larceny in the third degree and one count of criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree.

Police say On July 10 at approximately 2:09 p.m., Cloonan did enter the M&T Bank located at 80 State Street in the City of Albany and approached the teller with a note demanding money while he displayed what appeared to be a pistol.

The teller did turn over $11,930 and Cloonan then fled the bank. The robbery was reported to law enforcement, and two hours later a member of the Albany Police Department found the culprit in a neighborhood as someone matching the description of the bank robber. Cloonan was found to be in possession of $11,537, including 19 marked bills, and an imitation pistol.

He faces up to 15 years in State Prison when sentenced at a later date.
