Dress-Wearing NJ Bank Robber Gets Prison Term
A New Jersey man who wore a dress and a woman’s wig while robbing a bank last year is headed to prison.
Federal prosecutors say 26-year-old Kenneth Darrian of Trenton was sentenced Tuesday to a four-year term. He also must serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison and pay $2,960 in restitution.
Darrian had previously pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery.
Prosecutors say he robbed the Mercerville Chase Bank on June 23, jumping over the counter and pointing what appeared to be a handgun at the bank teller. He then grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and fled.
Darrian was captured four days later.
