Man Robbed Banks While Free on Bail for Other Bank Robberies

Published

on

LOS ANGELES – A man was sentenced Friday to 63 months in federal prison for robbing more than half a dozen credit unions – including two additional credit union robberies he committed while he was out on bond awaiting trial on federal bank robbery charges.

Trayvon McNutt, 33, of the Broadway-Manchester neighborhood of South Los Angeles, was sentenced by United States District Judge André Birotte Jr., who also ordered McNutt to pay $24,930 in restitution to the victim credit unions. McNutt pleaded guilty on August 30 to six counts of bank robbery and attempted bank robbery.

On six separate occasions between June and September 2018, McNutt walked into local credit unions, approached a teller and presented a note demanding money. Several of the notes stated, “I have a gun,” and “I am armed.” During a July 17, 2018 robbery of a California Credit Union in Carson, McNutt passed the teller a note that read, “This is a robbery. I am armed. Give me your cash or someone will get shot.”

The victim lenders were located in Lynwood, Gardena, Carson, Torrance and Hawthorne. On two separate occasions, McNutt returned to credit unions in Gardena and Carson that he previously robbed, and he robbed them again.

In October 2018, law enforcement arrested McNutt on a federal criminal complaint alleging bank robbery, and a federal grand jury indicted him during the following month. A search warrant executed at McNutt’s residence resulted in the seizure of bait bills, which banks use to trace bank robbers.

While he was out on bond in this bank robbery case, McNutt – this time, unlike the previous robberies, wearing a long dreadlocks hairstyle wig – robbed two additional credit unions in Hawthorne during a five-day span in May 2019. Later that month, McNutt again was arrested and has been in federal custody since that time.

In total, McNutt collected $24,930 in cash from the robberies, of which $2,115 was collected while he was awaiting trial.

Artist Offers Caricature Drawing of Suspect Who Stole $500 From Him

Artist Offers Up Caricature Drawing of Suspect Who Stole $500 From Him

RIVERSIDE (TMZ) — Talk about a cartoonish crime straight out of ‘The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show’ … cops are on the lookout for a thief who can only be described with a drawing, albeit a pretty good one.

This story’s hilarious, even though the man who got burned probably isn’t laughing. A street artist in Riverside claims he was jacked 2 weeks ago during the city’s Festival of Lights after drawing a would-be customer’s caricature … who then made off with his money bag.

Riverside police say the artist told them the suspect — who’s described as a 5-foot, 1-inch black man in his early 20s with black hair and a mustache — requested a caricature of himself, sat down for the entire session and then allegedly snatched $500 from the artist.

Sounds like the suspect made a clean getaway (for now, anyway) and the only thing cops have to go off is the portrait he left behind. Cops note … his features are exaggerated!

That said, they’re asking for the public’s help in IDing and nabbing this crook. Our suggestion — call in the Scooby-Doo crew, or any number of acclaimed animated do-gooders
