Investigators believe they have identified a possible suspect in Friday's robbery of a Five Star Bank in Pavilion, according to Deputy Chief Jerome Brewster.

"We remain very optimistic that we'll be able to solve this," Brewster said.

According to Brewster, there are some "common denominators" with prior bank robbers in Rochester and Geneva, and the Sheriff's Office has been working with those agencies to piece together evidence.

There may be DNA evidence and fingerprints to link the crimes with a suspect, Brewster said, but investigators are waiting on lab results.

As for the quality of the surveillance pictures released to the media, Brewster said the actual video from the bank is excellent quality. The problem with the still pictures released has to do with conversion of digital video to digital images.

Brewster said investigators have equipment to improve image quality and that Genesee Community College has state-of-the-art equipment if needed. But in this case "it isn't needed," Brewster said, because investigators already believe there is an identifiable suspect.

If there wasn't a good chance at solving the case, Brewster said, he might consider releasing the video or obtaining better quality still pictures from the video.

Authorities are still trying to locate two black males involved in a robbery of the Five Star Bank branch in Pavilion this afternoon.

According to Deputy Chief Jerome Brewster, a black male wearing wearing a blue and white striped shirt, jeans, a red ball cap and sunglasses entered the bank and 3:25 p.m. and presented a note demanding cash.

The robber fled with an unknown amount of money and jumped into a silver or grey pickup truck driven by another black male.

Around the same time as the bank robbery, a stolen vehicle was located on Crossman Road, off of Starr Road, in Pavilion. The motor was still running on the green Dodge Intrepid.

The car was stolen earlier from the park-and-ride lot off the I-490 in Le Roy.

It's unknown at this time if the stolen car is related to the bank robbery.

A couple of witnesses spotted the suspects fleeing and investigators are sorting through witness statements.

Officials say a photo of the bank robbery suspect will be released at some point this evening.

In October 2009, the same branch was robbed by a white male wearing a distinctive jacket. Nick A. Hawkins, 28, of 24 W. Main St., Le Roy, eventually admitted the robbery.

Law enforcement units from Genesee, Wyoming and Livingston counties and the State Police responded to today's robbery.

A robbery just occurred at the Five Star Bank on Cato Street in Pavilion. The suspect is described as a black male, 5'6" tall, slim build, wearing a blue and white striped shirt, jeans, a red ball cap and sunglasses. He told the teller he had a gun, but one was not shown. He fled the bank on foot and his direction of travel is unknown. Several law enforcement units are on their way to the scene.

UPDATE 3:43 p.m.: They are going to set up a perimeter to scour for the suspect. Patrols on the interstate highways are alerted as well as those traveling other routes, so are Wyoming and Livingston counties.

UPDATE 3:47 p.m.: They are going to ask Livingston County to send in its canine unit and are also checking the availability of the one in Genesee County. Officers are now interviewing neighbors to determine whether the suspect got into a vehicle and, if so, to provide a description of it.

UPDATE 3:50 p.m.: The canine unit from Livingston County is en route. A neighbor told officers that she saw the suspect get into a vehicle parked at the adjacent St. Mary's Church and there was another black male driving the car. The car's wheels squeeled out of the parking lot and the witness "was so shocked she doesn't remember anything (else)." They are going to check all the streets in the vicinity of the church and along Route 63. A pizzeria in the area had a security camera on and they are going to check it.

UPDATE 3:56 p.m.: "It appears they took off in the car pretty quickly." The suspects are estimated to be in their mid- to late 20s. The canine unit from Genesee County is not available.

UPDATE 3:59 p.m.: The camera by a nearby ATM machine is being screened to glean possible information.

UPDATE 4:04 p.m.: After speaking with a woman in the area, they are looking for a full-sized, silver-colored pickup truck with a regular cab. The witness saw it shortly before she was telephoned about the robbery and it was parked by the basketball courts by St. Mary's.

UPDATE 4:31 p.m.: Wyoming County authorities are reporting that they found a green car roadside (didn't catch which road) and the engine is still running, but no one is around it. They are checking the plates. It is unknown if this is related to the robbery or just an odd circumstance.

UPDATE 4:35 p.m.: They are saying the abandoned vehicle found with its motor running is a green pickup truck car. It's in the vicinity of Crossman and Starr roads, "by a trestle" in Wyoming County. 

UPDATE 4:38 p.m.: The license plates come back to a Le Roy resident, born in 1934, and there's no (telephone) answer at the owner's residence. Again, this may be completely unrelated to the robbery.

UPDATE 4:53 p.m.: Now they are checking on another matter, saying it's unknown whether related to the robbery. A person is going door to door in the area of 10982 S. Lake Road (Route 19) in Pavilion asking for gasoline. The caller could not provide a description of the person because of poor vision.

The assessment of Assistant District Attorney Will Zickl is that Carlos Torres is "committed to the commerce of illegal drugs," and today Judge Robert C. Noonan said he agrees.

Noonan noted that the probation report listed the names of six children Torres is responsible for, but in what the judge called one of the most bizzare paragraphs he's ever read in a probation report, Torres admits to fathering four other children. Torres, however, apparently doesn't know their names and their mothers have left the area.

He is obligated, according to Noonan, to make child-support payments for one of those four children, but hasn't been making payments.

"You're an irresponsible criminal who deserves the maximum sentence you negotiated," Noonan said.

Torres entered a guilty plea Jan. 9 to criminal possession in the fourth degree.

He was arrested in August and found carrying cocaine, crack and heroin with an estimated street value of more than $7,000.

At the time, Sgt. Steve Mullen, lead investigator for the Local Drug Enforcement Task Force, said "The weight of the powder cocaine, along with the number of bags of both crack and heroin, on top of his $4,000 (in cash), is significant for this county."

Torres came to the attention of investigators in May 2010 when he showed up at UMMC with gunshot wounds

At the time, he claimed he had been walking down Indian Falls Road when a car pulled up behind him, somebody demanded his wallet, then shot him. He called a friend who drove him to the hospital.

In May 2010, Torres was on probation out of Erie County for a 2008 drug conviction.

Attorney David Widenor argued vigorously that his 37-year-old client is a sincerely changed man who has seen the error of his ways.

"He wants to be a law-abiding citizen," Widenor said. "He has a family to support. He has six children he loves and wants to care for."

The August arrest derailed an opportunity for Torres to own a legitimate business locally, Widenor said, but the attempt itself was evidence that Torres knows he needs to get his life on a legitimate path.

"He wants to get out of this lifestyle he's been in," Widenor said.

Torres spoke briefly and quietly.

"I've been with the wrong people at the wrong times," Torres said. "I let my children down, but most of all, I let myself down. I want to change that."

Noonan said immediately that he agreed with Zickl's assessment.

"You have demonstrated that you're a drug dealer," Noonan said. "That's what you do and that's how you make a living."

After Noonan pronounced sentence, Torres's girlfriend, sitting in the gallery, began to cry. Torres and the woman have a child together.

A Georgia convict who fled parole in his home state, fled from police when they tried to arrest him in Batavia, attempted to strangle a fellow inmate in the Genesee County Jail and was accused of conspiracy to commit murder will serve a maximum eight-year prison term, Judge Robert C. Noonan ruled today.

Derick Barker, 26, previously pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance and strangulation, and both convictions carried a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Noonan ruled the sentences would be served consecutively.

Barker came to Batavia in May 2011 with his brother Justin, a Batavia resident.

The two men were found in a hotel room in June where drugs were present. When Derick learned he was about to be arrested, he fled across the Thruway, which led to a State Police helicopter search of the area.

While in jail on the charges, Derick was accused of plotting a murder-for-hire scheme with his brother.

Justin eventually entered a guilty plea on that charge, but as part of a plea bargain, the conspiracy charge against Derick was dropped.

Assistant District Attorney Will Zickl, in asking for a lengthy prison term for Derick, noted Barker's previous criminal record and his propensity for violence.

Attorney Thomas Burns said his client acknowledged his mistakes and that while a probation report noted some anger issues, he said Barker never displayed anger during their meetings, although the news Burns had to deliver was rarely good.

"I never encountered anything but complete kindness," Burns said. "He's been as polite as a client can be. Derick has many fine attributes and a nice personality when he wants to put it to work."

Burns said Barker -- who has spent a decade in and out of the legal system -- didn't have a stable childhood and missed out on educational opportunities.

When asked to speak, Barker said, "Mr. Burns said it better than I could say it. I apologize for taking up so much of the court's time for my mistakes. There's nothing I could say but I apologize."

Noonan said given Barker's record and the seriousness of the charges, he thought the maximum sentence was appropriate.

"The deal you negotiated is the best deal you're going to get," Noonan said.
