York man gets 30 years for robbing Etters bank

Posted: Updated:

A York man will spend 30 years in a federal prison for the armed robbery of an Etters bank.

Tristan Green, 28, must also serve three years of supervised release and must pay restitution as part of a sentence handed down April 4 by U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Conner.

Green and a co-defendant were convicted in August of taking more than $13,000 during the gunpoint robbery of the Fulton Bank branch at 2220 Old Trail Road on September 16, 2011.

His co-defendant, Willie Elmore, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced to 14 years in prison, and the two must jointly pay back the stolen money.

Green faces additional prison time for robberies of three other banks. In January 2013, he was found guilty of robbing the Sovereign Bank at 1442 Bannister Street in York, the Heritage Valley Credit Union at 777 Kings Mill Road in York, and the Sovereign Bank at 519 South 29th Street in Harrisburg.

He faces a mandatory minimum of 75 years imprisonment. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.
