Quincy Man Sentenced On Federal Bank Robbery Charges

A Quincy man will serve 42 months in federal prison for robbing multiple banks throughout the Boston area in early 2016.

Kyle P. Nathan, 28, was sentenced on Wednesday to 42 months in prison and three years of supervised release by U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock in Boston. Nathan pleaded guilty to four counts of bank robbery in March 2017.

In February and March 2016, an individual robbed the East Boston Savings Bank branches in South Boston and Dorchester and branches of Santander and Citizens Bank in Chelmsford. Because of similarities in the robberies and the physical description of the perpetrator, law enforcement suspected that the same individual was involved in each of the robberies. After the fourth robbery, Nathan was arrested wearing the same clothes the suspect was identified as wearing during all four robberies.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb; Harold H. Shaw, special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Colonel Richard D. McKeon, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; and Chelmsford Police Chief James Spinney announced the sentencing decision.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Weinreb’s major crimes unit prosecuted the case.
