A Waldorf man was sentenced Friday to 88 months in prison for his role in a June 2012 armed robbery in Montgomery County.
According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney for the Maryland District, 38-year-old Kai Holt pleaded guilty to conspiring to and ultimately carrying out an armed robbery of an armored truck in Rockville. Holt also pleaded guilty to firearms charges related to the planned robbery.
Holt and two other men, Carmen Camacho and John Williams, began planning to rob an armored car outside Rockville Navy Federal Credit Union on June 12 last year, according to the release.
On June 13, the day of the robbery, Holt, Camacho, Williams, Marcus Brooks and Deangelo Williams arrived at the bank around 11:20 a.m. while the vehicle was unloading, the release states. Holt and one of the other men approached, and Holt pulled out his gun. The driver of the armored truck dropped a bag containing $220,000 and ran away. Brooks grabbed the bag, and the men drove back to Prince George’s County to divvy up the cash.
Camacho, 31, of Fort Washington pleaded guilty to his role in the robbery and is awaiting sentencing. John Williams, 48, and Deangelo Williams, 20, both of Fort Washington and Brooks, 21, of Lanham also pleaded guilty. John Williams was sentenced to 112 months in prison, Deangelo Williams was sentenced to three years in prison, and Brooks was sentenced to 61 months in prison.
An investigation by the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm, and Montgomery and Prince George’s County police led to the arrests.
Holt will be on supervised release for five years when his term is finished, according to the release. U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams Jr. sentenced Holt.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Steven E. Swaney and William D. Moomau.
