Auto dealer sentenced for laundering cash for drug dealers

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The owner of Finish Line Auto on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo was sentenced to just over five years behind bars.

Officials say Jerry Robbins, 45, helped drug dealers launder money by selling them high end cars and faking paperwork to help disguise where the money would go. The drug dealers paid Robbins in full cash for the cars, and police say he only reported a small amount of cash received.

Robbins faced a maximum time of 20 years behind bars and a fine of up to $250,000. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
