Gary Fama, who held up the Capital One Bank last year has been found guilty of the crime.
Fama and his accomplice Jack Mannino, who has been dubbed the “7-second bandit” for his speedy heist jobs, met in prison and decided to rob the bank together on December 29th, according to the New York Daily News. Both men also have ties to the Gambino crime family.
The robbery went wrong after a dye pack exploded and their transmission blew out. They jumped out of the damaged getaway car and left behind Mannino’s wallet and cellphone.
After the FBI tracked him down, Mannino made a deal with the police to testify against Fama. He’s waiting on his sentence, according to a New York Post article.
Fama, an ex-con with previous firearm and drug convictions, now faces up to 17 years in prison on bank robbery and firearms charges.
