unlawful imprisonment and criminal
contempt; she was released following
her arraignment and is due to return to

WOODHAVEN ATM THIEF
PAYS FOR CRIMES
A Miami man was sentenced
on June 26 aft er being convicted
of forcibly removing ATMs from
a Woodhaven laundromat and a
Brooklyn fast food chain in 2015 and
later lying to a grand jury about it.
Kenny Gonzalez, 47, was convicted
of three counts of third degree
grand larceny, two counts of possession
of burglar’s tools, one count
of criminal mischief and one count
of fi rst-degree perjury. He was sentenced
to 3 2/3 years to 11 years in
prison to run consecutively.
According to trial testimony, at
10:22 p.m. on June 30, 2015, Gonzalez
and another man walked into
a Checkers restaurant, located at
11-46 Liberty Ave. They used a
hand truck to forcibly remove the
restaurant’s ATM, which contained
$5,000 in cash.
Earlier that day, at 9:05 p.m., Gonzalez
and two other men entered the
S&M Quality Laundry, located at 74-

and forcibly removed the ATM at
Queens Supreme Court Justice
Kenneth Holder, who presided at
trial, stated that it is usual to have
a fi rst-degree perjury charge given
the crimes, but despite the shameless
actions of the crimes, it is important
to remember the “bold and
brazen perjury” was not only in the
grand jury but before the trial jury.
