A man from Gloversville could spend the rest of his life in state prison for robbing a bank in Albany.
Ricky Hines was sentenced this week to 16 years to life as a persistent, violent felon.
He entered the M&T Bank on Central Avenue last April, pointed a weapon at the teller and demanded money.
He left with $361, but the stolen cash contained a GPS device that helped police find Hines a short time later in Swinburne Park.
The weapon turned out to be an imitation pistol.
