Four men were sentenced to 60 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release after being found guilty in a series of robberies in Northern Virginia that occurred in December 2012, including the robbery of the Potomac Yard Shoppers Food Warehouse.
Keith Willie Reed, 24, Anthony Cannon, 24, and Stanley Winston, 23, all of Washington, D.C., as well as Tobias Richard Dyer, 21, of Upper Marlboro, Md., were found guilty in June for conspiracy, robbery affecting interstate commerce, armed robbery of a credit union, use of a firearm during crimes of violence and being felons in possession of firearms.
They were also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $76,915.15.
According to court records and trial evidence, the defendants committed three armed robberies in Northern Virginia during the December 2012 holiday season. On Dec. 7, they robbed VVM, Inc., located in Fairfax County.
Two days later, they robbed the Shoppers Food Warehouse on Jefferson Davis Highway. Then, on Dec. 22, they robbed the Navy Federal Credit Union on Randolph Street in Arlington. All four were arrested within an hour of the Navy Federal robbery when law enforcement was able to track the money.
In each incident, three of the defendants entered masked while the fourth waited in a stolen getaway car. The total loss amount from these three armed robberies was more than $75,000.
The case was jointly investigated by FBI’s Washington and Baltimore field offices as well as the Metropolitan, Fairfax County, Arlington County and Alexandria police departments.
Detective Sean Casey worked the case for the Alexandria Police Department.
