Two men from Pennsylvania who robbed a bank at gunpoint in Carneys Point in July, 2018, will be spending the next 14 to almost 23 years in federal prison.

Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig says 41-year-old Antwaine Thomas of Philadelphia was sentenced to 22 1/2 years in prison on Tuesday. 31-year-old Kareem Moore of North Wales, PA, was sentenced to 14 years behind bars.

Honig says both previously pleaded guilty to an indictment charging them with armed bank robbery and brandishing a firearm during a bank robbery.

Authorities say,

On July 30, 2018, Thomas and Moore walked into the Fulton Bank in Carneys Point, Salem County. Thomas pointed a loaded handgun at four bank employees while demanding cash. Thomas then handed the handgun to Moore, and Moore also demanded cash while displaying the handgun in such a way that the bank employees could see it. Thomas and Moore took cash from the bank and fled. Responding officers arrived at the bank within minutes of the robbery, and after a brief foot pursuit across the street, they tackled and arrested Moore, who had a portion of the proceeds hidden inside of his pants. Thomas was arrested several hours later, and he was captured on surveillance video in a nearby residential area, disposing of the cash, gun, and his clothing.

In addition to the prison terms, they were both sentenced to five years of supervised release and each has to pay $103,444 in restitution.
