BOISE – A north Idaho man has been indicted on federal charges for his role in a violent ATM robbery at a bank in McCall last Friday.
U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced that Nathan Paul Davenport, 34, of Bonners Ferry, was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Boise for bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon and use of a deadly weapon during a felony offense.
According to the indictment, on Jan. 10, 2014, Davenport broke into and stole around $26,120 from an ATM located at the Idaho First Bank in McCall. It alleges that he used a Ruger assault rifle and shot at law enforcement officers during the crime.
“Those who use firearms to commit violent crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted,” said Olson. “The FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office will move swiftly and decisively where evidence shows that those individuals attempt to injure law enforcement officers who themselves are trying to keep our communities safe. Along with our local law enforcement partners, we will continue to investigate this incident.”
Davenport and Matthew Taber Annable, 39, were arrested on Jan. 12 in Orem, Utah, in connection with another ATM robbery in Douglas, Wyoming on Dec. 8 , 2013. Both men appeared in federal court in Salt Lake City Monday on the Wyoming charges.
Prosecutors say the bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon is punishable by up to 25 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. The charge of use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony offense is punishable by a mandatory minimum of 10 years up to life in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.
The case is being investigated by the FBI, the Idaho State Police, the Valley County Sheriff’s Office, and the McCall Police Department.
