ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Federal authorities have indicted a 26-year-old Syracuse man, accusing him of robbing the same bank twice only four days apart.

Prosecutors allege that James Chisholm walked into a Chase Bank branch on March 12, handed a teller a note demanding money, reached for his belt as if he had a weapon, and left with $489.

Chisholm is accused of doing the same thing four days later at the same bank, leaving with $2,753.

An FBI affidavit says Chisholm admitted using the money for food, heroin, clothes and a taxi to the mall and the bank.

Chisholm, who pleaded not guilty, has been jailed since his arrest March 16. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer to comment on his behalf.
