Michael Coty, 45, of Norwood, Massachusetts, pled Guilty in U.S. District Court in Boston in connection to three Armed Robberies in Needham, Wellesley and neighboring communities.
Police alleged that Coty and his co-defendant, Dimitri Long, robbed several Boston banks between April and July in 2009. During those robberies, the suspects allegedly wore masks and placed a fake bomb on the tellers’ counters before robbing the banks at gunpoint. Once the fake bomb was in place, the robbers would stage a fake 30 second countdown before the bomb was to go off.
Long has not changed his plea, and is contesting the criminal indictment that charges him with Armed Bank Robbery.
Having pled Guilty the three counts of Armed Robbery, Coty could face up to 25 years in Federal Prison, and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count. He is next scheduled to appear in Boston’s Federal Court for sentencing on September 13, 2010.
