UTICA – The Clinton man accused of robbing Adirondack Bank in south Utica last weekend made a brief appearance in Utica City Court this morning.
Twenty-year-old Alexander Reznicek was supposed to have a felony hearing, but instead his attorney waived it on his behalf, which means the case will go straight to a grand jury for their consideration. That could happen anytime within the next month or so.
Reznicek is accused of robbing Adirondack Bank on Genesee Street in south Utica around 12:30 p.m. Saturday. He was located and arrested just hours later after he called police and turned himself in. He's charged with third-degree robbery.
Police say no weapons were involved in the robbery, but Reznicek allegedly handed a bank teller a note demanding money and claiming that violence would occur if any alarm was activated. He then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police.
The defense requested today that Reznicek’s $15,000 bail be lowered, but the judge kept it as is.
