For Immediate Release
Man Sentenced to 14 years for Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robberies
Gregory J. Haanstad, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced today that Dave Anglin of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was sentenced by the Honorable Judge Lynn Adelman to 168 months’ imprisonment for conspiracy to commit armed robberies. Dave Anglin, his brother, Michael Anglin, and a third individual committed the December 9, 2013, robbery of the Hampton Service Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the time, Dave Anglin had just been released from prison and was finishing up his federal sentence for a prior armed bank robbery conviction at Parson’s House in Milwaukee.
Dave Anglin was scheduled to go to trial in December 2015 but agreed to plead guilty on the first day of trial as prospective jurors and trial witnesses were kept waiting. His brother, Michael Anglin, had previously been convicted of related charges following a jury trial in April 2015. During the robbery, Dave Anglin and Michael Anglin brandished a 9mm handgun and an assault rifle. Michael Anglin pistol whipped and shot an employee of the Hampton Service Center, causing life-threatening and permanent injuries. The two brothers again armed themselves and planned to commit another armed robbery on the morning of December 17, 2013, but law enforcement intervened after receiving information about their plans.
The successful prosecution of this case was the result of a joint investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Milwaukee Police Department. Assistant United States Attorneys Kelly B. Watzka and Jonathan H. Koenig prosecuted this case.
