Nichole Mason, 37, and Dylan Coats, 34, are both charged with the felonies of second-degree robbery and fourth-degree conspiracy, according to a Facebook post by the Schenectady Police Department. Police said that about 9:45 a.m. Thursday Mason entered the bank at 1708 Broadway wearing a mask and passed the teller a note demanding money.

The teller handed over a bank bag with $5,160 in cash in compliance with the bank’s protocol, police said.

Mason then left the bank and got into a car driven by Coats, police said. They were able to track Mason and Coats to an address on Brown Street where the money was recovered, police said. No weapons were used.

Mason is currently on parole for second-degree burglary, a felony, and Coats is on parole for first-degree robbery, a felony, police said.
