Evidence presented by the United States at the change of plea and sentencing hearings reveal on March 20, 2018, defendant robbed the United Bank of Moville.  He then fled the bank in a stolen car, at a high rate of speed creating a substantial risk of death or injury to the motoring public.  Ultimately, defendant lost control of the stolen vehicle, left the roadway, and crashed destroying the stolen car.  All the stolen money was recovered, and law enforcement arrested Reed.

Reed was sentenced in Sioux City by Chief United States District Court Judge Leonard T. Strand.  Reed was sentenced to105 months’ imprisonment. He was ordered to make $13,821.00 in restitution the United Bank of Moville.  He must also serve a 3-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Reed is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was investigated by the Moville, Iowa Police Department; the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office, the Iowa State Patrol, the FBI, the Kingsley, Iowa, Police Department, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office and the Woodbury County Attorney’s Office and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Forde Fairchild.
