Crimes Took Place within 36-Hour Period in May 2014
WASHINGTON— A family of four from the crime-infested District of Columbia found robbery kept their family ties strong and profitable….well almost…they dropped a lot of the money when hightailing it out of the bank.
According to the FBI, the four, three brothers and their criminal sis, are now going to do time in a federal prison together, as a result of their crime spree.
Three brothers and their sister, all from Washington, D.C., were sentenced on Jan. 6, 2015 to prison terms for a pair of robberies that took place within a thirty-six-hour period of a convenience store in Montgomery County, Md., and a bank in the District of Columbia.
The sentencing took place in Federal Court and was announced by the U. S. Attorney for D.C., Ron Machen Jr.
The brothers—Alex Alexander, Alvin Alexander and Allante Alexander—pled guilty in October 2014 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to one count of conspiracy to interfere with interstate commerce by robbery and one count of bank robbery. Their sister—Alisha Alexander—pled guilty in October 2014 to one count of conspiracy to interfere with interstate commerce by robbery and one count of acting as an accessory to bank robbery.
Federal Judge Paul L. Friedman sentenced Alex Alexander, 22, to 36 months in prison; Alvin Alexander, 24, to 39 months; Allante Alexander, 20, to 36 months, and Allesha Alexander, 25, to 20 months. Upon completion of their prison terms, they will be placed on three years of supervised release. The judge also ordered them to pay $958 in restitution.
The FBI reports that their investigation showed that the Alexander brothers entered the Colombo Bank, in the 1300 block of 9th Street NW, at approximately noon on May 12, 2014. After leaving the bank, they decided that they were going to return at some point to rob it.
On May 13, 2014, and continuing into May 14, 2014, according to the government’s evidence, the Alexander brothers and their sister were riding around the District of Columbia, in the sister’s vehicle, when they decided they were going to rob a convenience store located at a gas station in the 8300 block of Colesville Road in Silver Spring, Md.
According to the FBI, the four siblings arrived at the convenience store at approximately 2:55 a.m. on May 14, 2014.
The gang entered the establishment and robbed the attendant of about $158 before fleeing the scene and returning to the District of Columbia.
Apparently the heist of the gas station was a type of training for the gang as the FBI says that they then boosted the bank they had visited the previous day.
The FBI reported that on May 15, 2014, at approximately 10:30 a.m., the Alexander brothers returned to the Colombo Bank on 9th Street NW, in their sister’s vehicle.
The three brothers entered the bank while their sister waited inside her vehicle – after all, the getaway car has to have a driver and that way they didn’t have to pay for parking.
The Bozo Brothers robbed the teller of approximately $800 before fleeing to the waiting vehicle.
Now this is the best part.
This gang of robbers were so dumb that on the way out of the bank they dropped the money. Its a good thing they are going to a Federal prison for a few years where they can get some training from really professional criminals.
The U. S. Attorney handed kudos to all the D.C. cops, the FBI agents and other Justice employees for their contributions to the successful prosecution of these dirtbags.
