BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Following a bank robbery in the summer of 2015, a Buffalo man has admitted guilt and will spend time behind bars for the crime after his sentencing.
Isaiah Brown, 28, admitted to robbing multiple banks by donning a wig, passing a note to a teller and threatening possession of a gun. He made off with cash both times, but was caught on his second attempt.
Police in West Seneca captured Brown after a brief confrontation when he used a cab to flee the scene of a First Niagara Bank robbery. After being caught, he faced federal charges of bank robbery and admitted guilt.
At sentencing on Tuesday, officials say a judge ordered him behind bars for four years and nine months.
Officials credited the FBI and multiple police agencies for helping to bring Brown to justice.
