Walmart Bandit Pleads Guilty

NEW ORLEANS –  U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced that TERRY MADISON, age 22, pleaded guilty yesterday to committing robbery of a Walmart Money Center located in Hammond, Louisiana, on April 14, 2018. 

MADISON admitted that he entered the Walmart and passed a demand note to the cashier in the Walmart Money Center, and also reached into his waistband, implying that he was armed with a firearm.  The teller complied with the demand, and MADISON escaped with over $3,000 in cash.

MADISON will be sentenced in this case by U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey on March 12, 2019 and faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in the Bureau of Prisons, three years of Supervised Release, a $250,000 fine, and a mandatory $100 special assessment.

U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser praised the hard work of the Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Crime Unit and the Hammond Police Department in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorney Myles Ranier was in charge of the prosecution.
