Bank robber pleads guilty, sentenced to four years just two days after robbery
Just two days after he walked into the Scotiabank location at 863 Princess Street with a threatening note demanding money, the bank robber walked out of the Ontario Court of Justice headed for federal prison.
Kevin Penzes, 36, plead guilty to his charges of robbery and breach of probation on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 — the day after Kingston Police laid charges against him. Kingston Police caught up with Penzes at Kingston Mills Locks mere hours after the bank robbery occurred on Tuesday, Oct. 9. According to Kingston police, he had been waiting at Kingston Mills Locks for a ride. Most of the stolen cash was recovered.
Today, Penzes was sentenced to four years of federal prison time. Originally from Brantford, Ont., Penze came to reside in Kingston after he was institutionalized here and released earlier this year.
