GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A man has been sentenced to serve 18 years in prison for armed bank robbery and attempted bank robbery, U.S. Attorney Andrew Birge announced Tuesday.

David Wilson Floyd stole more than $11,000 from the New Buffalo Savings Bank after pointing a gun at a teller in September 2019, according to the U.S. attorney’s office. Floyd also tried to rob the G.W. Jones Exchange Bank in Edwardsburg later that month, though he couldn’t because the door was locked.

FBI, along with local Indiana and Michigan authorities, investigated the incidents along with six other robberies of convenience stores and gas stations in the area.

Floyd was ordered to pay $12,294 in restitution.

He pled guilty in March and will be supervised for three years upon release.
