Three arrested after Penfield bank robbery, police chase


PENFIELD, N.Y. (WROC) — Three people were arrested and charged by law enforcement after a bank robbery in Penfield Wednesday, officials from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities say deputies responded to the KeyBank located on Penfield Road around 10:20 a.m. Wednesday for the report of a bank robbery.

Police say witnesses were able to provide a description of the suspect vehicle and responding deputies later saw a vehicle matching the description in the area of East Rochester.

Officials say the suspect vehicle got onto State Route 490 westbound heading towards the City of Rochester. Officers from the sheriff’s office, New York State Police, and East Rochester police attempted a traffic stop on 490, but police say the suspect vehicle failed to comply.

Authorities say after a short pursuit, the suspect vehicle veered off of 490 and onto 590 north where it struck a guardrail. Police say one person then exited the vehicle and took off on foot and was then detained after a short foot pursuit.

Police say two other people were detained where the crash occurred.

Officials from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspects and announced charges Thursday:

  • Ray Quinones, 26 of Rochester: Third degree robbery, fourth degree grand larceny. He is currently on parole stemming from a first degree robbery and kidnapping conviction. He was sent to Monroe County Jail on a parole violation.
  • Kadeem Hall, 22 of Rochester: Third degree robbery, fourth degree grand larceny. Released on his own recognizance.
  • Markiel Smith, 26, Rochester: Third degree robbery, fourth degree grand larceny. Double predicate felon, remanded to Monroe County Jail without bail.
