PHOENIX, Ariz. — Yesterday, Carlos Devon Lewis, 41, of Phoenix, Arizona, was sentenced by Senior U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell to 25 years in prison, followed by five years of probation, yesterday. Lewis was convicted of three counts of armed bank robbery.

In late 2019, Lewis and his co-conspirators robbed three area banks at gunpoint. In each robbery, the fully masked Lewis jumped the cashier’s counter, stole money from the cashier’s drawers and jumped over the counter while his masked co-conspirator pointed a gun at employees and bank customers. Both then escaped in a getaway car. In total, Lewis and his co-conspirators stole over $80,000.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Peoria Police Department, Surprise Police Department, and Phoenix Police Department conducted the investigation in this case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Tracy Van Buskirk, Emma Mark, and Lindsay Short, District of Arizona, Phoenix, handled the prosecution.
