Bonners Ferry Man Pleads Guilty to Violent ATM Theft in McCall
BOISE — Nathan Paul Davenport, 35, formerly of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, pleaded guilty yesterday to bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony offense, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Davenport was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 9, 2014.
According to the plea agreement, on January 10, 2014, Davenport and his co-defendant, Matthew Taber Annable, aiding and abetting each other, broke into and stole cash from an automated teller machine (ATM) located at the Idaho First Bank in McCall, Idaho. Davenport possessed, carried, used, and discharged a firearm, specifically a Ruger semiautomatic rifle, in connection with the offense. Davenport admitted that he used the rifle to shoot at pursuing McCall police officers. As relevant conduct, the indictment charged both men with other ATM larcenies committed against Idaho Banking Company in Boise and Meridian on January 5, 2014, and a conspiracy to commit a string of ATM larcenies in December, 2013 and January, 2014, which occurred in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, as well as in Idaho.
Davenport did not challenge forfeiture allegations filed for the purpose of forfeiting firearms connected with the crimes, and proceeds of the crimes.
Davenport and Annable were arrested by FBI agents without incident on January 12, 2014, in Orem, Utah, in connection with a separate ATM robbery in Wyoming. The two men were in custody on the Wyoming charges prior to being transported to Boise on the Idaho charges. In the District of Wyoming, both men pleaded guilty to single counts of ATM theft and aiding and abetting and each received a fourteen month prison sentence.
Davenport’s sentencing is set for June 22, 2015, in front of U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge. Annable’s plea hearing is scheduled for April 20, 2015, also before Judge Lodge.
The charge of bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon as charged in the Idaho indictment is punishable by up to 25 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to five years of supervised release. The charge of use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony offense is punishable by a mandatory minimum of ten years and up to life imprisonment, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to five years of supervised release.
The case has been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Idaho State Police, the Valley County Sheriff’s Office, and the McCall Police Department.
