Serial Bank Robber Receives 15 Year Plus Prison Sentence

G.F. Peterman, IIII, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced that Quinn Morgan of Milledgeville, GA, age 60, was sentenced in Macon by the Honorable Marc Treadwell, United States District Judge, to 188 months imprisonment for multiple counts of bank robbery in this district and elsewhere.  There is no parole in the federal system. 

Between May 2, 2016 and June 28, 2016, Mr. Morgan robbed the BB&T Bank located at 201 Second Street, Macon, GA; the CGR Credit Union located in the Navicent Health Center (formerly the Medical Center of Central Georgia) located at 770 Pine St., Macon, GA; and the Robins Financial Credit Union located at 577 Mulberry Street, Macon, GA.  He would enter the bank/credit unions wearing different clothing and present a note demanding money.  Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Mr. Morgan within minutes of the Robins Financial Credit Union robbery.

After his arrest, FBI agents discovered that Mr. Morgan had committed other bank robberies outside of the Middle District of Georgia.  It was determined that on February 12, 2016, he had robbed the Day Air Credit Union located at 4100 West Third Street, Dayton, OH;   the Wells Fargo bank located at 12830 Highway 9 North, Alpharetta, GA on June 3, 2016; and the SunTrust Bank located at 3020 Peachtree Road, NE, Atlanta, GA on September 29, 2015. 

For each of the robberies, Mr. Morgan would attempt to disguise his appearance and present a note demanding money from the bank teller. 

After his arrest by Bibb County deputies, Mr. Morgan confessed to all of the robberies.

“It was the excellent police and investigative work by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI that led to the capture of this serial robber and brought his nine month crime spree to an end,” said United States Attorney Peterman.  “It is good to know that Mr. Morgan will not be able to feed his addiction to other people’s money for the next one and a half decades.”

“The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is proud of the swift action by our deputies to arrest this serial bank robber, which has resulted in him being put behind bars for over a decade,” said Sheriff David J. Davis.

“Thanks to a quick response by Bibb County Sheriff deputies, a string of bank robberies that would have surely continued, was ended,” said David J. LeValley, Special Agent in Charge of the Atlanta FBI Field Office. “And thanks to a thorough investigation by FBI Agents and Bibb County after that arrest, Mr. Morgan’s lengthy spree of bank robberies was uncovered, ending in a prison sentence that will give him plenty of time to think about changing his path in life.”

The case was investigated by Bibb County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  Assistant United States Attorney Michael T. Solis handled the prosecution for the Department of Justice.

Questions concerning this case should be directed to Pam Lightsey, Public Affairs Specialist, United States Attorney’s Office, at (478) 621-2603.
