Gloversville man gets over 3 years in prison for plot to rob bank

A Gloversville man was sentenced to over 3 years in prison for conspiring to rob a bank in Johnstown.

Luke Kenna, aka Lt., 44, previously admitted that between Nov. 14 and Nov. 27, 2022, he worked with two other men to plan and commit an armed robbery at the bank.

Kenna conducted surveillance of the bank and bought items including weapons to commit the robbery, the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

He also admitted that he possessed a rifle.

He is banned from having weapons because of a misdemeanor conviction for domestic violence.

Kenna received 41 months in prison.

Co-defendant Michael Brown, of Pennsylvania, got 37 months for his role in the scheme.

A third defendant, Brian Tierney, admitted to ordering handgun parts for use in the robbery and sent photographs of the handgun and a radio scanning and jamming device to Kenna. Brown also conducted surveillance with Kenna.

Tierney is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 16.
