Insider Bank Robbery Leads to 46 Months in Prison

OKLAHOMA CITY – CAMRY CORTEZ WILSON, 21, of Edmond, Oklahoma, was sentenced today to 46 months in prison for bank robbery, announced Robert J. Troester, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.

On November 15, 2017, the government filed a criminal complaint against Wilson for robbing the JPMorgan bank branch at 13805 North May Avenue in Oklahoma City.  According to an FBI agent’s affidavit in support of the complaint, a masked person forced himself into the bank at approximately 7:35 a.m. on August 31, 2017, as employees were unlocking the front door.  It appeared to employees that he was familiar with layout of the bank, including the location of the vault.  Without ever speaking, the person presented a note that indicated it was a robbery and that he had a gun.  He left the bank with $203,000 in cash and a key to an employee’s car, which he used as a getaway vehicle.

Through surveillance video, Uber records, and other information, the FBI determined Wilson was likely the robber.  The bank had fired him for misconduct on April 6, 2017, because his teller drawers were short $13,400.  Although he had been in financial difficulties before the robbery, in the weeks after the robbery he made large purchases in cash.  On September 7, 2017, he paid $27,074 in cash for a 2017 Dodge Challenger.  And on October 9, 2017, he traded in the Challenger in Atlanta for a 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300, which involved paying a balance of $24,932.92 in cash.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment against Wilson for bank robbery on December 5, 2017.  He agreed to combine his guilty plea hearing with his sentencing, which took place today before U.S. District Judge Robin J. Cauthron.  After accepting his guilty plea, the court sentenced Wilson to 46 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release.  He was also ordered to pay restitution of $168,154.82, the amount remaining after law enforcement recovered $34,845.18 during his arrest.  The sentence also includes forfeiture of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz and the contents of three bank accounts.

This case is the result of an investigation by the FBI and the Oklahoma City Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mark Stoneman and Ashley Altshuler prosecuted the case.
