A federal judge sentenced twin brothers to more than eight years in federal prison Monday for robbing $90,000 from a Landover Wachovia
bank with help from a corrupt employee and others, the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office announced.
Darnell and Ronnell Davis, 26, of Severn and Washington, D.C.
, respectively, were also ordered to pay $118,000 in restitution and to forfeit a Dodge Challenger and Cadillac Escalade, each model year 2007.
According to court records, the brothers and another man drove to the Wachovia on the 7700 block of Landover Road on Jan. 11. Two of the men entered the bank wearing masks and carrying guns and took a bag of cash from a bank employee, who was in on the job and heading to an ATM with the money. They then ran back to the getaway vehicle and "sped away," according to prosecutors.
The trio also tried to break into an ATM at a PNC Bank
in Greenbelt in February, using a blow torch and some kind of cutting tool. The bank had to replace the machine, which cost $28,000.
The third man, Cortez Maurice Mallory, 27, of Clinton, was sentenced to the same prison term and restitution order last month.
