Deltoine Scott Sentenced To 200 Months For Felony Murder Related To May 2017 Loomis Armored Car Robbery

NEW ORLEANS – United States District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle sentenced DELTOINE SCOTT, age 25, of New Orleans, to 200 months in federal prison for his role in a 2015 armored car robbery and a 2017 attempted armored car robbery in which Loomis guard James McBride was killed, announced U.S. Attorney Peter Strasser.

As part of a plea, SCOTT admitted to conspiring with JEROME KIEFFER and ARMSTEAD KIEFFER, who are father and son, to commit two armored car robberies, a 2015 robbery at the Chase Bank on N. Board and a 2017 attempted robbery at the Campus Federal Credit Union on Tulane.  SCOTT testified against the KIEFFERs during an October 2018 trial, admitting his role and identifying JEROME KIEFFER as the other gunman in both robberies and ARMSTEAD KIEFFER as the lookout in the 2017 attempted robbery that resulted in McBride’s death.  Both of the KIEFFERs were convicted on all counts at trial and face a mandatory life sentence.

SCOTT will served 200 months, to be followed by three years of supervised release after his incarceration.  SCOTT was also ordered to pay in restitution the $160,000 that was stolen during the 2015 robbery, for which the KIEFFERs will be jointly and severely liable. 

U.S. Attorney Strasser praised the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Orleans Police Department in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorneys David Haller and Michael McMahon were in charge of the prosecution.
