Lakeville Man Pleads Guilty to Attempted Robbery of a Credit Union

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Minnesota

ST. PAUL, Minn. – A Lakeville man has pleaded guilty to attempting to rob a credit union at gunpoint, announced U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger.

According to court documents, on February 9, 2023, Jeron Marvin Lee Davis, 29, attempted to rob at gunpoint a credit union located in Maplewood, Minnesota. Davis waited outside in a black Chevrolet sedan until the credit union’s manager closed the credit union and walked to his vehicle in the parking lot. Davis approached the manager’s vehicle, pointed a pistol-grip assault rifle at him, and directed him to exit the vehicle. Davis forced the manager at gunpoint to re-enter the credit union and access the vault. The manager explained to Davis that vault access required two employees. Davis threatened to kill the manager but eventually accepted the explanation. Davis stole the manager’s wallet and fled the scene in the black Chevrolet sedan.

Davis pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court before Judge Eric C. Tostrud to one count of attempted bank robbery. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later time.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI and the Maplewood Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jordan L. Sing is prosecuting the case.
