Man Who Robbed Fitchburg Bank Sentenced to 100 Months

MADISON, WIS. – Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Quincy Dixon, 25, Madison, Wisconsin, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge William Conley to 100 months in federal prison for robbing the BMO Harris Bank in Fitchburg on December 4, 2017.  Dixon pleaded guilty to this charge on March 21, 2018. 

Dixon entered the BMO Harris Bank shortly before 11:00 a.m. on December 4, and handed a teller a note demanding money.  After the teller gave Dixon the money, he fled on foot.  Surveillance cameras showed Dixon going into a nearby apartment complex, where officers found clothing and identification that Dixon left behind.  Police later received a tip that led to Dixon’s capture that evening at a fast food restaurant near Stoughton Road. 

In sentencing Dixon, Judge Conley considered his long criminal history and pattern of violent crimes that have impacted others, as well as the fact Dixon was on supervision for a state robbery conviction at the time he committed the bank robbery.

Dixon was also ordered to pay restitution to the bank, as the stolen money was never recovered.

The charge against Quincy Dixon was the result of an investigation conducted by the Fitchburg Police Department, Madison Police Department, and Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert A. Anderson.
