St. Louis, MO – David Thelix McGee was sentenced to 115 months in prison for committing bank robberies. 

According to court documents, on April 17, 2017, McGee entered the Great Southern Bank in Ferguson and slid a piece of paper to the teller stating that she should give him some money.  McGee wanted large bills and provided a plastic bag for the teller to put the money in.  The teller grabbed a large stack of U.S. Currency and asked if that was enough to which McGee responded yes and left the bank. 

On May 8, 2017, McGee entered the Bank of America in St. Charles and handed a teller a plastic bag and a note, which read that he needed straps of $100s, $50s and $20s.  The teller gave him the U.S. Currency and McGee left the bank. McGee was on supervised release for a bank robbery in Illinois.

McGee, 48, of St. Louis, pleaded guilty on July 27, 2018, to two counts of committing bank robberies.  He appeared in federal court this morning before U.S. District Judge Audrey G. Fleissig. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Assistant United States Attorney Tom Mehan is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney's Office.
