A 44-year-old city man was sentenced Tuesday to nearly a decade in prison for bank robbery, including two robberies at the same TD Bank branch on Raymond Boulevard, the US Attorney’s office said in a statement.
Clifton E. Mosely committed a series of robberies beginning on Dec. 29, 2011 at the TD Bank on Raymond Boulevard, where he handed a teller a note stating he had a gun and demanding $2,500.
Mosely followed a similar method in subsequent robberies, handing tellers threatening notes demanding cash, and largely stuck to financial institutions within the city.
On Jan. 13, Mosely entered the PNC Bank on Central Avenue and handed the teller a note warning he would start shooting unless given cash. On Feb 11, Mosely returned to the TD Bank on Raymond, then hit another TD Bank branch Feb. 17. That branch is located on Mulberry Street.
Six days later, Mosely struck at a PNC Bank in East Orange but fled before getting any cash.
In addition to the prison term, Mosley was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $7,759 in restitution.
The Newark Police Department and the FBI worked together on the investigation leading to Mosely’s arrest.
