A Bothell man who robbed the Juanita Village Bank of America at gunpoint last August could face a six-year prison sentence, as recom-mended by federal prosecu-tors on Jan. 22.
Anthony Ray Shindler, 43, was armed with a handgun when he robbed $3,563 from the Kirkland bank on Aug.
5, 2011 and fled on foot. FBI arrested him on Aug. 8 at the Totem Lake QFC, where employees recognized Shindler from bank surveillance. Shin-dler was a meat cutter at QFC.
A magistrate judge released Shindler from federal detention in Seattle on his own recognizance in August,
pending he wear a GPS tracking device. He pleaded guilty to armed robbery and
firearm possession on Nov. 4, 2011.
The Kirkland robbery was also not Shindlers first. He
robbed a Woodinville 7-Eleven convenience
store in July of 2011, accord-ing to a sentencing memo-randum. He was unarmed
during that robbery, in which he stole $45 in cash.
In a letter to the court, Shindler explained his financial circumstances that led up to the Kirkland rob-bery. He said he purchased a home for his wife in Granite Falls in 2008 and fell behind on mortgage payments. He also suffered from anxiety and depression, according to court records. With the
stress of possibly losing our house I desperately and fool-ishly turned to gambling, said Shindler, noting his home eventually went into foreclosure.
He also apologized for his actions during the Kirkland holdup. While I feel it is worth mentioning that the pistol was neither loaded or for that matter operable, I understand the impact my
actions caused that day on the lives of so many, as well as the grave danger those ac-tions placed on the people at the bank and myself. I do sin-cerely regret those actions.
Federal prosecutors are recommending a six-year prison sentence, as well as supervised release for three years and restitution of $1,703. Shindlers sentencing hearing is set for Feb. 16.
