Two men who stole over a quarter of a million dollars from a Davenport bank have pleaded guilty to federal charges. On March 19th of this year, at about six o’clock in the morning, an armored vehicle arrived to restock an A.T.M. at the U.S. Bank in Davenport.
Authorities say surveillance video showed James T. Hohlfeld, of Moline, Illinois, and Dylan T. Trones, from Sparta, Wisconsin, waited for the two people in the armed vehicle to go inside the A.T.M.
Thirty seconds after the A.T.M. door closed, Hohlfeld and Trones broke into the armored vehicle and stole 260-thousand dollars. Prosecutors say they left the bank on foot. A dozen days after the robbery the F.B.I. arrested the two men. They have both pleaded guilty to bank larceny and transporting stolen money across state lines. They’ll be sentenced on September 24th.
