Filmmaker robs a bank to finance his film in the US

An American filmmaker could face up to 20 years in prison for trying to rob a bank to finance his movie, the US Justice Department said last week.

On June 28, 2022, Nako Ray Brown, age 54, moved to City of Belle Isle Credit Union., Florida, wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, mask and surgical gloves. Once there, he handed the cashier a note demanding money and warned her that he had a gun. In the end he managed to get away with $4,296.

The events were captured by a security camera and a witness saw Brown exit the bank and enter a nearby gas station, from which he came out dressed in different clothes. Later, the police found the perpetrator at the hotel where he was staying, arrested him and recovered the stolen cash, as well as the “disguise” he had abandoned in his escape, indicates Rt.

The man involved pleaded guilty and assured authorities that he had stolen the money due to lack of funds to pay for the film’s production. But, this was not the first time he had committed a crime. He was on supervised release through 2020 for a 25-year prison sentence related to the robbery of three banks in the state of Maryland in 2001.

In addition to facing a maximum sentence of 20 years for this new offense, Brown could face an additional three years for failing to meet the terms of his probation. His sentencing date has not yet been set.
