A Rochester man has been arrested in four bank robberies -- including M&T Bank branches in Cheektowaga and Snyder.
The FBI said it closed out a seven-month investigation with the arrest of Darryl James Glover, 39. He was charged Wednesday with bank robbery, a federal offense, in connection with the July 21 robbery of an M&T Bank branch at 4168 Union Road, Cheektowaga, and the July 31 robbery of an M&T branch at 2050 Kensington Ave., Snyder.
According to an affidavit filed by Special Agent Gary Earl Adams, the robber at the Cheektowaga bank reached under his jacket with his right hand and pulled out a small black gun from his waistband, then demanded money from the teller.
The robber at the branch in Snyder went to the teller's window and pointed a small, blue, short-barreled revolver at the teller, according to the affidavit. Rochester police later recovered the getaway vehicle used in that robbery.
Glover also is charged in the June 26 armed robbery of a Fleet Bank in Auburn, according to a statement released Thursday by the FBI.
There also was an outstanding warrant for Glover's arrest in the June 6 armed robbery of First Western Bank in Erie, Pa., according to Special Agent Gregory W. Jennings.
Glover appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott in federal court Wednesday afternoon. He pleaded innocent, Jennings said. Scott ordered Jennings held without bail pending his detention hearing, which was scheduled for this afternoon.
