MIAMI – On May 23, a Miami multi-convicted felon was sentenced to 240 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release for two attempted credit union robberies, one credit union robbery and one bank robbery while on supervised release for a separate case. The sentence comes after the defendant was convicted in a three-day federal jury trial.

On Sept. 29, 2023, Keith Bernard Miller, 54, of Miami, entered two credit unions in Miramar and attempted to rob each one but to no avail. Then, Miller drove to a credit union in Boca Raton, presented a note demanding money, and stole over $1,600. Then, on Oct. 10, 2023, Miller drove to a bank in Davie and presented a demand note to the teller. In fear for her life, the teller relinquished over $1,300 to Miller. Later that day, law enforcement officers located Miller’s getaway vehicle and arrested him. Law enforcement officers then found draft demand notes and clothing worn during the robberies.

In 2020, Miller was sentenced to 65 months in prison and three years of supervised release after pleading guilty to three counts of credit union robbery. Prior to his 2020 federal case, Miller had been previously convicted of multiple robberies, aggravated stalking with a firearm, burglary with assault and battery and felony eluding, among other offenses.

U.S. Attorney Markenzy Lapointe for the Southern District of Florida and Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey B. Veltri of the FBI, Miami Field Office, announced the sentence imposed by U.S. District Judge Roy K. Altman.

FBI Miami investigated the case with assistance from the Miramar Police Department, Boca Police Department and Miami-Dade Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ajay J. Alexander and M. Catherine Koontz prosecuted the case.
