A 40-year-old Indiana man has been sentenced to life in prison for robbing a bank in eastern Iowa.
A man armed with a handgun robbed the U.S. Bank in Muscatine back in November of 2012. Authorities say Thomas Alexander Davis III got about $3000 in cash and fled back to Indiana. He wasn’t arrested until 2015.
Davis had been convicted of robbing banks in Indiana in 1995 and again in 2005. Earlier this year, a jury found Davis guilty of the Muscatine robbery. That conviction was his “third strike” and the mandatory sentence for Davis is life in a federal prison.
The woman who drove the get-away car for Davis to escape after robbing the bank in Muscatine was also caught. She testified against Davis in his federal trial in February. In early April, she plead guilty to conspiracy and was sentenced in state court to five years probation.
