The mastermind behind the robbery
armored truck in Rockville last year was sentenced to 9 years in prison by a federal judge.
John Bernard Williams, 48, of Fort Washington, MD, received the sentence Thursday after pleading guilty to armed robbery, and related conspiracy and weapons offenses.
In total, five men—including Williams’ 20-year-old son—have pleaded guilty to robbing the Navy Federal Credit Union branch at 12244 Rockville Pike on June 13, 2012, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
They made off with $220,000. Federal prosecutors said Williams was the one who hatched the plan.
Williams, according to prosecutors, had arranged for two men—Carmen Camacho, 31, of Fort Washington, MD and Kai Holt, 38, of Waldorf, MD—to rob the truck driver at gunpoint.
Meanwhile, he had Marcus Brooks, 21, of Lanham, MD and Deangelo Williams, John Bernard Williams’ son, waiting in one of the get-away cars, prosecutors said.
They all fled back to Prince George’s County where they split up the proceeds.
Deangelo Williams was sentenced to 3 years in prison. Camancho, Holt and Brooks were awaiting sentencing.
