DAVENPORT, IA—On December 1, 2011, Darryl Leearl Jackson, Jr., age 26, formerly from Burlington, Iowa, was sentenced to 75 months’ imprisonment for bank robbery, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. United States District Judge Robert W. Pratt also sentenced Jackson to serve three years’ supervised release following imprisonment and ordered him pay restitution to the bank for its losses and pay $100 to the crime victims fund.

On April 14, 2010, Darryl Jackson entered the MidWestOne Bank in Burlington, Iowa, and ordered two tellers to place cash in a bag, brandishing what appeared to be a handgun. Jackson took the cash, which totaled over $34,250, and fled.

After the Burlington Police Department obtained information that Jackson had traveled to Indiana in a particular vehicle, detectives obtained a state arrest warrant for Jackson and provided a description of the vehicle to the Bloomington, Indiana, Police Department. Acting on this information, on April 17, 2010, Bloomington police located the involved vehicle at a Bloomington hotel and arrested Jackson. In the vehicle, officers found a safe containing a substantial amount of money later identified as taken from the MidWestOne Bank in Burlington. Jackson was indicted in federal court on August 12, 2010, and pleaded guilty on January 28, 2011.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Burlington, Iowa, Police Department, and the Bloomington, Indiana, Police Department and was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
