Bank robber faces sentencing in October

La Plata, MD - Tysean Deonta Daughtry, 22 of Washington, DC will face sentencing Oct. 19 for robbing a BB&T bank in Waldorf back in February.

According to a plea agreement with the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office, Daughtry can only receive six years of a 15-year potential sentence when he comes before the court later this year.

According to Charles County Assistant State’s Attorney Katrine H. Bakhtiary, the defendant entered BB&T bank on Old Washington Road in Waldorf and handed a teller a handwritten note which read, “I have a gun,” Bakhtiary stated.

She said Daughtry was wearing an “army style” floppy hat and “indicated to the teller he had a weapon.”

Bakhtiary added that two detectives were doing surveillance due to a string of bank robberies in the area and saw the suspect running from the bank into a field where he was picked up by another man in a silver Toyota.

The two men drove to Pinefield Station, where the susect’s car became disabled on a curb.

“Both men fled the vehicle and started to run,” she stated.

The suspects were eventually apprehended and police found more than $200 in paper currency in the vehicle, some of it still secured in bank wrappers.

“The keys were still in the ignition,” she said.

She said that in addition to Daughtry, accomplice Timothy Matthews Corey was also arrested.

Charles County Circuit Court Judge Helen I. Harrington said she will sentence Daughtry Oct. 19 in La Plata.
