Patrick O’Boyle, 60, of Bayonne, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton in Newark federal court to an indictment charging him with one count of bank robbery yesterday, authorities said.
On May 25, 2016, O’Boyle robbed the Bayonne Community Bank on Washington Street in Jersey City by approaching the teller and demanding all “your 100s, 50s, and 20s and make it quick because my car is double parked outside,” officials said.
He had his left arm clutched at his side as if he had something under his hooded sweatshirt, which the teller thought might have been a gun. The teller handed him cash, and O’Boyle fled the bank, police said.
The bank robbery charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense.
O Boyle’s sentencing is scheduled for February 20, 2018.
