EDMESTON –After passing a note to the teller, police say the man charged with robbing the NBT in Edmeston walked out with about $6,500 in cash.
“According to the police reports, it looks like the defendant left the location with approximately $6,500 in cash,” said Otsego County District Attorney John M. Muehl Wednesday.
The defendant, 38-year-old David A. Lolik of Edmeston, turned himself into police May 31 after state police released his photograph and officially declared him a person of interest in the case.
He is charged with third degree robbery, a Class D felony carrying a maximum sentence of up to seven years in state prison. He has pleaded not guilty and waived his right to a felony in Town of Edmeston court yesterday. He is currently represented by Attorney James P. Ferrari of the Otsego County Public Defender’s Office.
