Camden Man Sentenced to 92 Months in Prison for Robbing Banks

CAMDEN, N.J. – A Camden man was sentenced today to 92 months in prison for his role in a bank robbery spree in July 2018, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced.

Laque Hunter, 37, of Camden, previously pleaded guilty to Count Three of an indictment charging him with bank robbery. Judge Renée Marie Bumb imposed the sentence by videoconference today.

According to documents filed in this case and the evidence at trial:

On July 24, 2018, Anthony L. Livingston, 50, of Camden, recruited Hunter to rob the Collingswood Ocean First bank on his behalf, and drove Hunter to the bank. Hunter robbed the bank with a demand note. Livingston served as the getaway driver, and the two split the proceeds. Livingston was convicted at trial in May 2019 of two counts of bank robbery and was sentenced in November 2021 to 200 months in prison.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Bumb sentenced Hunter to three years of supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Sellinger credited special agents of the FBI-Cherry Hill, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Jacqueline Maguire in Philadelphia; the Camden County Police Department, under the direction of Chief Gabriel Rodriguez; the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Acting Prosecutor Grace C. MacAulay; the Camden County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff Gilbert “Whip” Wilson; the Collingswood Police Department, under the direction of Chief Kevin J. Carey; the Gloucester Township Police Department, under the direction of Chief W. Harry Earle; and the Stratford Police Department, under the direction of Chief Ronald M. Morello, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kristen M. Harberg and Patrick C. Askin of the Camden Office.
