Bank robber gets 4 years for robbing Tiverton bank

March 11, 2019

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Massachusetts man who robbed a Rhode Island bank has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 36-year-old Justin Davis, of Fall River, was also sentenced Monday to three years of probation for robbing a Bank Newport branch in Tiverton in October 2017.

Authorities say Davis entered the bank and handed the teller a note that read “All $100 50, Empty Draw, No Dye packs, No Alarms.”

The teller handed him $4,920 and he ran from the bank to a nearby cemetery and was seen on surveillance video leaving the area in a vehicle. He was stopped a short time later in Fall River. The clothes he wore during the robbery were found in the cemetery and the car.

He pleaded guilty in September.
