DENVER, COLORADO – United States Attorney Jason Dunn announces that Dustin Alan Wall, age 31, of Colorado Springs, was sentenced to more than 13 years in federal prison for his role in two robberies in Colorado Springs.
According to the facts contained in the plea agreement, Wall aided and abetted robberies of both a Days Inn and an ENT Federal Credit Union in Colorado Springs. Specifically, on February 16, 2018, Wall drove two co-defendants to a Days Inn in Colorado Springs. Wall told one of the co-defendants that, as part of a gang initiation, the co-defendant would get money and respect from the robbery. Inside the motel, the robbers assaulted a victim, hitting him over the head, causing injuries. The men stole less than $200.
A month later, on March 14, 2018, Wall drove with two other co-defendants to the ENT Federal Credit Union. One of the co-defendants was provided with a gun and a note to use in the robbery. Inside the ENT Federal Credit Union, the co-defendant demanded a teller provide cash or he would “blow [his] brains out.” The co-defendant stole less than $6,000, which was later divided up among the group.
“Taking violent gang members off the street is what we do best, said U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn. “Colorado Springs is safer as a result of the good work of this office and our colleagues at the FBI, the Colorado Springs Police Department, and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.”
“Dustin Wall, a ranking Rolling 60s Crips gang member, recruited and organized young gang members to commit violent armed robberies of banks and businesses in the Colorado Springs area, terrorizing innocent employees and witnesses at gunpoint and stealing cash, all to further the insidious needs of his gang,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider. “The Colorado Springs community is safer with him behind bars. We thank our partners at the Colorado Springs Police Department Robbery Unit, Task Force Officers at El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, and U.S. Attorney’s Office for helping us hold this dangerous criminal accountable.”
United States District Court Judge William J. Martinez sentenced Wall on January 29, 2021.
This matter was investigated by the FBI, the Colorado Springs Police Department, and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Kurt Bohn is prosecuting the case.
