A man has been sentenced to 10 years in state prison and five years post-release supervision for robbing Generations Bank in Auburn in 2019.
WSYR-TV reports Dustin W. Hall was convicted in Cayuga County Court Thursday. He robbed the bank on South Seward Avenue at gunpoint on June 5, 2019, then escaped to Pennsylvania with $21,000. He was arrested there on July 4, 2019 on a gun possession charge. He was convicted and sentenced to two years in prison. Hall was returned to New York when he completed his prison time in Pennsylvania.
Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Brittany Grome Antonacci said “this was one of the most serious bank robberies in recent Cayuga County history. The defendant used a real gun, terrorized the innocent employees and customers, and stole a significant amount of cash. He will appropriately be sentenced to a lengthy prison term for this crime.”
