ONEIDA, N.Y. – Oneida police have identified the suspect in Tuesday’s NBT Bank robbery as 61-year-old Claude E. Dent, of Utica.
The Utica Police Department and the New York State Police were alerted after the incident and assisted in locating the suspect, who was then turned over to the Oneida Police Department.
Dent was charged with first-degree robbery and third-degree grand larceny.
Oneida Police Chief Paul Thompson says Dent entered the NBT Bank on Genesee street just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, and slid a note to the teller demanding money. He says Dent made hand movements in his jacket pocket to suggest that he had a gun. The teller then handed over an undetermined amount of cash and Dent fled the scene in a tan sedan.
Dent was arraigned in Oneida City Court and remanded to the custody of the Madison County Sheriff without bail pending further court action.
