A Buffalo man appeared Wednesday in Amherst Town Court following his arrest last week on charges robbing an Amherst bank.
Samuel Roberts, 21, of Stockbridge Avenue, was due in court for a felony hearing, but that was waived by his attorney.
Roberts is charged with robbing the M&T Bank branch at 3500 Main St. in University Plaza on Jan. 5. Roberts fled after the robbery but was arrested by Amherst police detectives last week. He was remanded to the Erie County Holding Center.
