Woman admits robbing two banks last summer


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Buffalo woman faces up to 20 years in prison for robbing two banks last summer.

Adlyn Marie Echevarria Robles, 21, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal charge of bank robbery. Last July, Robles entered the M&T Bank on Hertel Avenue and handed the teller a note demanding a specific amount of money.

Around three weeks later, she then robbed the M&T Bank on Elmwood Avenue by using a note threatening the use of a weapon.

Robles will be sentenced at a later date.
