KILLINGWORTH, Conn. (AP) — A New Jersey man has pleaded guilty to a bank robbery in Connecticut.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 39-year-old Lavon Young, of Union City, New Jersey, entered his plea Wednesday in connection to a bank robbery in Killingworth.
Court documents show Young and David Earl entered a TD Bank with a pellet gun Jan. 27 and told everyone to get down or they would “blow their heads off.”
The men fled the scene with $9,754 in cash.
Officers later spotted their car in East Haven and engaged in a pursuit. Police say the men threw money out the car’s windows during the chase, but officers were able to recover all but $275.
Earl pleaded guilty to the robbery in May.
Both men face up to 20 years in prison.
