LAS VEGAS – A California resident was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge James C. Mahan to 10 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release for committing multiple robberies, including several while he was on pretrial release.
Spar Bilicki (30) pleaded guilty in March 2022 to one count of conspiracy to commit bank robbery; six counts of bank robbery; one count of conspiracy to commit interference with commerce by robbery; two counts of interference with commerce by robbery; and one count of commission of an offense while on release.
According to court documents, from October 26, 2020, to December 2, 2020, Bilicki and another person committed multiple robberies in Las Vegas and Henderson. In all of the robberies, Bilicki handed the victim bank teller or store employee a note that demanded money and also threatened to shoot people if the victim did not comply. In two of the robberies, he lifted his shirt to show a handgun in his waistband. After Bilicki made his initial appearance and once Bilicki was released from pretrial detention, he proceeded to commit three additional robberies on July 1, 2021 in Las Vegas.
U.S. Attorney Jason M. Frierson for the District of Nevada and Special Agent in Charge Spencer L. Evans for the FBI made the announcement.
