GREENBELT , MD—U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams, Jr. sentenced Edward Lewis Mayo, age 32, of Temple Hills, Maryland today to 14 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiracy to commit bank larceny in connection with a scheme to steal over $588,000 from an armored car, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to his plea agreement, on June 29, 2008, Mayo met with two conspirators to plan how to steal money from an armored van belonging to a company that delivered and replenished Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) with cash for banks and financial institutions.
At the time, the conspirators worked as ATM technicians for the company. On July 5, 2008, they stole $588,000 from an armored van.
Later that day, fearing that the police would catch them, the conspirators contacted another individual who buried two bags containing $103,780 and $220,980 in two separate places in Temple Hills. A third bag, containing $280,000 of stolen money, was hidden in a closet. The money was later recovered by law enforcement.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Montgomery County Police Department, and Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy and his office for their work in this investigation and prosecution. Mr. Rosenstein commended Assistant United States Attorney Robert K. Hur, who is prosecuting the case.
