Davidsonville man pleads guilty to robbing bank

March 29, 1996

A Davidsonville man pleaded guilty yesterday to robbing an Edgewater bank, admitting that he threatened tellers at the First Virginia Bank with a knife and took $5,520.

Andre Lavar Evans, 18, of the 400 block of Heitzman Road could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years for the felony.

Evans was charged with four robberies from June to July last year, at Washington Federal Savings Bank in the 3100 block of Solomons Island Road in Edgewater on June 16 and June 23; First Union National Bank in the first block of Parole Plaza on June 26; and the First Virginia Bank in the 2700 block of Solomons Island Road on July 29.

Evans was arrested by FBI agents Oct. 20. His trial in February ended in a hung jury.

As part of a plea agreement reached between the state's attorney and Evans' lawyers, the government will move to dismiss the other three charges at Mr. Evans' sentencing. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.
