KC Man Sentenced for Bank Robbery


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Mo., man was sentenced in federal court today for robbing a Raytown, Mo., bank last summer.

Carlos D. Davis, 19, of Kansas City, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips to six years and six months in federal prison without parole. The court also ordered Davis to pay $1,231 in restitution.

On Oct. 30, 2012, Davis pleaded guilty to robbing US Bank, 9063 E. Gregory in Raytown. Co-defendant Deonte L. Robertson, 22, of Kansas City, Mo., pleaded guilty on Nov. 7, 2012 and awaits sentencing.

Davis and Robertson entered the bank on June 29, 2012, and sat together at chairs in the teller lobby. Davis approached a teller while Robertson, acting as the lookout, remained seated in the lobby. Davis handed the teller three paper bags and a note, directing her to put large bills in a bag. The teller put money in the bag and gave it to Davis, who demanded she also fill another bag. When she told Davis that she didn’t have any more money, he and Robertson fled from the bank.

A police officer who responded to the alarm saw Davis and Robertson a few blocks from the bank, walking down the middle of the street. As the officer approached, the men split and began running in different directions. The officer caught Robertson and later found approximately half of the robbery proceeds, about $990, hidden nearby. Davis was arrested later.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christina Y. Tabor. It was investigated by the FBI, the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department and the Raytown, Mo., Police Department.
