“Smash-and-grab” robber sentenced

justice-deptFloyd Davis, 43, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced Friday to 84 months in prison and over $1,000,000 in restitution for his role in a series of smash-and-grab robberies and for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

Davis pleaded guilty on July 2, 2013. According to court documents, Davis was a member of a smash-and-grab robbery crew that committed over a dozen robberies in the Washington, D.C. area and elsewhere.

The crew entered various high-end retail establishments as a group and, through force and intimidation, stole merchandise from the stores. Davis often acted as a lookout and scouted the locations before the robberies. The crew stole over $1,000,000 in merchandise during the robbery spree.

This case was investigated by the FBI, Fairfax County Police Department, Arlington County Police Department, and Montgomery County Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan Fahey and Special Assistant United States Attorney Edward Reilly prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.

Kathleen M. Kahoe, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; Valerie Parlave, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office; Colonel Edwin C. Roessler Jr., Fairfax County Chief of Police; M. Douglas Scott, Arlington County Chief of Police; and J. Thomas Manger, Montgomery County Chief of Police, made the announcement after sentencing by United States District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema.
