Ulster Man Convicted of Robbing Hudson Valley Key Bank
An Ulster County man was found guilty of robbing a local Key Bank.
On Friday in Ulster County Court, a jury found Bradley Cook of Kingston guilty of robbery.
On July 24, 2017, Cook walked to the Key Bank on Wall Street in Kingston dressed in a black hoodie, a baseball hat, black sunglasses, a scarf covering his neck and chin, and latex gloves.
He approached a bank teller and handed her a note demanding money.
The note stated, “no tracers, no dye bags, no police, nobody gets hurt.”
In response, the teller handed Cook $699 which he promptly took and exited the rear of the bank, according to the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office.
A still shot of the bank robber taken from security footage was distributed to police. Shortly, Cook was identified as the bank robber, found and arrested after he confessed to the crime, police say.
Cook is scheduled to be sentenced on May 25.
