ALBUQUERQUE – Ryan Schorr, 28, of Albuquerque, N.M., pled guilty today in federal court to robbing two branches of US Bank in New Mexico in Sept. and Oct. 2017.

The FBI arrested Schorr in April 2018, for robbing the US Bank located at 2015 Eubank Blvd on Sept. 21, 2017, and robbing the US Bank located at 3801 Isleta Blvd on Oct. 3, 2017.  According to court documents, Schorr robbed both banks by giving a handwritten note to the bank teller stating that he had a gun and was demanding money.  FBI agents located Schorr with the help of witnesses who were able to identify Schorr in security camera footage taken at both bank robberies.

Schorr will remain detained pending his sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.  At sentencing, Schorr faces a statutory maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine. 

This case was investigated by the Albuquerque office of the FBI. Assistant U.S. Attorney Niki Tapia-Brito is prosecuting the case.
