Collinsville man receives 6 1/2 years for bank robberies

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV) -- A Collinsville man received a six and a half year prison sentence for a pair of bank robberies in 2012 and 2013.

 

The Belleville News Democrat reports that Steve Dodson, 45, was sentenced on Friday. He also must pay more than $112,000 in restitution and has three years of supervised release after his prison term ends.

 

On Sept. 19, 2012, Dodson agreed to make a fake 911 call to divert police while Dodson's co-conspirator, William Hunter, robbed Fairmount Village Credit City in Fairmount City, Ill. Hunter, who has pleaded guilty to robbery charges, stole $11,401. 

 

On May 24, 2013, Dodson stole $100,000 in cash when he approached Scott Credit Union employees who were filling an ATM machine with cash outside the O'Fallon, Ill., branch. His wife, Denise Dodson, picked him up. Her case is still pending.
