Bonners Ferry Man Pleads Guilty to Violent ATM Theft in McCall
BOISE—Matthew Taber Annable, 40, formerly of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, pleaded guilty today to bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit bank larceny, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Sentencing is set for June 10, 2015, before U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge.
According to court documents, on January 10, 2014, Annable and his co-defendant Nathan Paul Davenport, aiding and abetting each other, broke into and stole cash from an automated teller machine (ATM) located at the Idaho First Bank in McCall, Idaho. The indictment alleges that Davenport possessed, carried, used, and discharged a firearm, specifically a Ruger semiautomatic rifle, in connection with the offense. Davenport admitted that he used the rifle to shoot at pursuing McCall police officers. Annable was aware that Davenport shot at pursuing officers because Davenport and Annable communicated over an open cell phone connection during the larceny. During Davenport’s heist from the ATM, Annable drove about nearby waiting to pick up Davenport in an escape vehicle. As part of the conspiracy, the indictment charged both men with other ATM larcenies committed against Idaho Banking Company in Boise and Meridian on January 5, 2014, and a string of ATM larcenies in December, 2013 and January, 2014, which occurred in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, as well as in Idaho.
Davenport pleaded guilty on March 30, 2015, to bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon, use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony crime, and conspiracy to commit bank larceny. He will be sentenced on June 22, 2015.
Annable and Davenport were arrested without incident on January 12, 2014, in Orem, Utah, in connection with a separate ATM robbery in Wyoming. The two men were in custody on the Wyoming charges prior to being transported to Boise on the Idaho charges. In the District of Wyoming, both men pleaded guilty to single counts of ATM theft and aiding and abetting and each received a fourteen month prison sentence.
The charge of bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon as charged in the Idaho indictment is punishable by up to 25 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to five years of supervised release. The charge of conspiracy to commit bank larceny is punishable by up to five years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years’ supervised release.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Idaho State Police, the Valley County Sheriff’s Office, and the McCall Police Department.
