KANSAS CITY, MO—David M. Ketchmark, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that two men have been charged with robbing U.S. Bank in Raytown, Mo., last week.
Carlos D. Davis, 19, and Deonte L. Robertson, 21, both of Kansas City, Mo., were charged in a federal criminal complaint that was filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo., on Friday, June 29, 2012. Davis and Robertson, who had their initial court appearance today, remain in federal custody pending a detention hearing.
According to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Davis and Robertson entered US Bank, 9063 E. Gregory Blvd., Raytown, Mo., at about 10 a.m. Friday, June 29, 2012. They initially sat together at chairs in the teller lobby, the affidavit says, then Davis joined a line of customers at a teller station while Robertson remained seated as a look-out.
Davis allegedly handed the teller three brown paper bags and a note, which demanded she put money in the bags. The teller pushed a silent alarm before placing $2,221 in the bag and handing the bag of money to Davis, the affidavit says. Davis allegedly ordered the teller to fill another bag, but she told him she did not have any more money. According to the affidavit, both men then left the bank together.
A Raytown police officer was responding to the call of a bank robbery when he noticed the two men walking down the middle of the street a few blocks away from the bank. When the officer approached the men, the affidavit says, they split and began running. The officer was able to apprehend Robertson at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 8812 E. Gregory Blvd. Davis was not apprehended, but turned himself in over the weekend.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christina Y. Tabor. It was investigated by the Raytown, Mo., Police Department and the FBI.
