The U.S. Attorney’s office in Massachusetts has announced that a Boston man pleaded guilty this week in federal court to robbing 10 banks last year in the greater Boston area, including the Bank of America in Wellesley Lower Falls this past September.
Paul B. Landrum, dubbed the “Route 128 Bandit,” pleaded guilty to 10 counts of bank robbery. Sentencing has been scheduled for Aug. 13. In November 2017, Landrum was arrested and charged in federal court and has been in custody since. He admitted to robbing eight banks individually, and assisting another suspect with two more robberies.
Landrum faces a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
