BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A man serving a three year state prison sentence for bank robbery now admits he robbed two other banks.
Timothy Ernle, 51, of Buffalo pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges of bank robbery. Authorities say in July 2010, Ernle robbed the M&T Bank on Delaware Avenue in Kenmore and twice robbed the Evans National Bank on South Park Avenue in Hamburg.
In each robbery, Ernle wore a baseball hat, latex gloves and a stocking over his face. He would jump over the counter and demand the tellers empty the drawers.
He was caught in August 2010 while robbing a bank in Niagara County.
Ernle will be sentenced in October.
