Three Arrested in Connection to North Greenbush Bank Robbery

Three men are now in custody in connection with Tuesday's bank robbery in North Greenbush.

Federal officials charge Christopher Cohn and Ulysses Walls, both from Albany, with bank robbery, and a third person, Quardel Valentine, with conspiracy.

North Greenbush police say Cohn and Walls burst into the bank Tuesday morning, threatened to kill the bank's staff, and got over $10,000.

Cohn allegedly fired a shot in the air, and the bullet grazed a teller's arm.

Valentine said to be the getaway driver.

Police used a GPS device to track the suspects to the Motel 6 on Watervliet Avenue Extension in Albany, where they were arrested.

The three in court on Wednesday, and remain behind bars in Rensselaer County.
