ST. LOUIS – A judge hands down a 30-year sentence for a man convicted of robbing two banks. Briran Blake, 30, of St. Clair County was found guilty in September.
Blake was found guilty of robbing a Regions Bank on Hampton Avenue in St. Louis in June of 2017. He presented a demand note to the teller and made off with nearly $2,000.
Thirteen days later Blake entered another Regions Bank on South Broadway and presented a demand note. He also flashed a weapon at the bank teller before making off with $4,200.
Blake was indicted in August 2019 following an analysis of the demand notes.
