Cambridge Police report arresting a 51-year-old man with a criminal record that dates to childhood on charges he robbed a bank on Alewife Brook Parkway this afternoon.
Kim Daley, formerly of Boston and now of Malden, only got out of federal prison on May 9 after serving a 100-month sentence for robbing three banks, including a Rockland Trust branch in Allston, in 2015. In December, 2020, a federal judge denied his request for early release due to Covid-19, concluding society was more at risk from him reoffending than he was from potential risks of contracting Covid-19 due to his asthma.
According to Cambridge Police, Daley robbed one of the bank branches on Alewife Brook Parkway shortly before 4:30 p.m. by giving a demand note to a teller.
After a BOLO was issued, Daley was spotted by the off-duty officer in a grocery store and taken into custody by patrol officers while inside a nearby River Street pharmacy. A show up was conducted and the teller positively identified Daley.
In addition to the 2015 bank robberies - which he committed only weeks after his release on a probation violation for a 2013 breaking-and-entering conviction - Daley has a criminal record that dates to when he was just 12, including 24 convictions as an adult, according to a prosecution filing in the 2015 case:
These convictions include assault and battery, multiple B/E charges, assault, drug possession, and armed robbery. Daley has been sentenced to prison on over 20 occasions. These sentences, as outlined in the [probation department's pre-sentencing report], range from days and months to extended sentences in the Massachusetts State Prisons.
