Man sentenced for 2 bank robberies

Posted: Updated:
( -- A St. Louis man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in two bank robberies.

Altonio G. Graves, 39, was found guilty of the robbery of Lacle Community Credit Union in Alton, Ill., on Feb. 11, 2013, and the robbery of People's Bank and Trust in Altamont, Ill., on Feb. 26, 2013. 

Documents filed in court say Graves entered the Laclede Community Credit Union wearing a long black women's wig, a black hat and a black trench coat to disguise his appearance. Graves told the teller he had a gun, handed her a plastic grocery bag and a note demanding money. The teller placed $5,684 in the bag and Graves left with the money.

Nearly two weeks later, Graves entered the People's Bank and Trust, again wearing a wig and trench coat. He handed the teller a note and the teller gave Graves $7,390. 

Graves and an accomplice, Annalisa McGhee, 28, led authorities on a chase, eventually crashing into a ditch.

McGhee is awaiting sentencing.

Graves has previously been convicted of second-degree murder.
