A Los Angeles man is expected to plead guilty Friday to federal charges of bank robbery and attempted bank robbery linked to four South Bay banks or credit unions.
Trayvon McNutt, 32, admitted in a plea agreement filed in Los Angeles federal court that between June 2018 and last September he used “intimidation” to rob five credit unions, including two of them twice, and attempted to rob a Wells Fargo Bank branch.
McNutt faces up to 120 years in federal prison and could be ordered to pay restitution of nearly $25,000 at sentencing, according to the plea agreement.
The attempted robbery took place at a Wells Fargo branch in Lynwood, court papers show. McNutt also admitted robbing a Kinecta Federal Credit Union in Gardena in June 2018 and last September, and a California Credit Union in Carson in July 2018 and again in September, according to his plea agreement. He also acknowledged robbing a second California Credit branch in Torrance.
Prosecutors alleged that three months ago, while on pretrial release in the current case, McNutt robbed a Kinecta branch in Hawthorne, making off with $20. Later the same month, he robbed a Wescom Credit Union, also in Hawthorne, according to federal prosecutors.
McNutt was arrested last October when a law enforcement officer spotted his gold-colored Cadillac XTS on an Inglewood street, officials said. He was pulled over and arrested for multiple outstanding traffic warrants, authorities said.
