Bank Robber Sentenced to Over 13 Years in Federal Prison for Seven Robberies Committed During One Week in 2013

Brandished a Gun During a Robbery on June 20, 2013

Greenbelt, Maryland – U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm sentenced Keith Dunmore, age 47, of Washington, D.C., today to 162 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for bank robbery.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Kevin Perkins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation-Baltimore Field Office; Assistant Director in Charge Paul M. Abbate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - Washington Field Office; Chief Hank Stawinski of the Prince George’s County Police Department; Chief J. Thomas Manger of the Montgomery County Police Department; and Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh. 

According to his plea agreement and other court documents, from June 7 through June 20, 2014, Keith Dunmore, his brother Dallas Dunmore, Derrick Hart and Teddy McCain robbed or attempted to rob banks in Maryland and Virginia.  In each robbery the conspirators passed notes to bank employees threatening to use violence and implying the possession of firearms unless the employees provided the money.  During the robbery on June 20, 2013, which Keith Dunmore committed alone, he brandished a gun at the teller.  The conspirators divided the proceeds of the bank robberies amongst themselves. 

Keith and Dallas Dunmore generally entered the bank and presented the teller with a note demanding money.  On one occasion the note stated that Dallas Dunmore had a gun, while on two other occasions Dallas Dunmore told the teller that he or another conspirator had a gun.  McCain waited outside during each robbery.  Hart also waited outside during the robberies, except on June 19, 2013, when Hart entered the bank with Keith and Dallas Dunmore.  On June 20, 2013, Keith Dunmore entered a bank in Largo, Maryland, handed the bank teller a note that demanded money, and brandished a firearm.  The teller gave $2,040 to Keith Dunmore, who fled the bank.

The total proceeds from the seven robberies in which Keith Dunmore participated are $10,477.  The total proceeds from the five robberies in which Dallas Dunmore participated are $5,370; and the total proceeds from the six robberies in which Hart and McCain participated are $8,437.

Co-conspirators Dallas Eric Dunmore, age 49, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced to 163 months in prison; Derrick Hart, age 45, of District Heights, Maryland, was sentenced to 75 months in prison; and Teddy McCain, age 56, of Germantown, Maryland, was sentenced to six years in prison.  Each was also ordered to pay restitution in the full amount of  the loss to the banks.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the FBI; Prince George’s and Montgomery County Police Departments; the Arlington, Fairfax, and Alexandria, Virginia Police Departments; and the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicolas Mitchell, who prosecuted the case.
