Philadelphia man sentenced for robbing same two banks twice

A Philadelphia man was sentenced Friday to 71 months in prison for robbing the same pair of banks he was previously incarcerated for robbing in 2010.

According to U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman, Keith Ney, 54, was convicted in September 2011 of robbing the Cape Bank in Atlantic City and a Citizens Bank in Center City Philadelphia. He was sentenced to 57 months in prison and a period of supervised release.

After Ney was released and on supervised release, he robbed the same Citizens Bank on April 22, 2015. He fled the area and boarded a bus to Atlantic City, where he robbed the same Cape Bank.

An employee of the Cape Bank reported the robbery to a nearby police officer, who immediately spotted and arrested Ney.

Ney eventually pleaded guilty to two counts of bank robbery and violating the conditions of his federal supervised release.

When Ney's prison term is finished, he will be forced to pay $1,397 in restitution and complete three years of supervised release.
