Man found guilty of robbing banks in Westchester, Putnam counties
A federal jury has convicted a 39-year-old man of robbing seven suburban New York banks and a restaurant within two months.
The U.S. attorney's office says Karriem Barrow of the Bronx was convicted of seven counts of armed bank robbery and one count of armed robbery. He was also found guilty of conspiracy and weapons crimes.
Prosecutors said that between January and March of 2010, Barrow and an accomplice robbed a Bronx restaurant and banks in Cortlandt Manor, Briarcliff Manor, White Plains, Bronxville and Mahopac.
They took about $187,000.
The accomplice, Carl Farrington, pleaded guilty and testified against Barrow.
Barrow faces eight terms of life imprisonment plus a minimum consecutive term of 200 years in prison. He's due to be sentenced in April.
