Defendant Admits Brandishing a BB Gun During the Robbery

DALLAS — Rodney Dewayne Womack, 38, of Dallas, was sentenced this afternoon, by U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis, to 110 months in federal prison for robbing a BBVA Compass Bank located in Carrollton, Texas, in February 2013, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

According to documents filed in the case, on the morning of February 15, 2013, a male, later identified as Womack, entered the BBVA Compass Bank located at 3040 East Trinity Mills Road in Carrollton.  After entering the bank, he pointed a handgun, which law enforcement later determined to be a BB gun, at a teller and demanded money.  In fear, the teller put cash into the plastic bag that Womack provided.  Womack took the bag, walked out of the bank and was arrested later that day.

The case was investigated by the FBI and the Carrollton Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson was in charge of the prosecution.
