15 years for armored truck robbery try

By Mary Pat Flaherty

The District man who attemped to rob an armored truck outside Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park in 2009 and eventually barricaded himself inside a home before being shot by a Prince George's County officer was sentenced Thursday to 183 months in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Roger W. Titus sentenced Toumani Touray Thomas, 33, in federal court in Greenbelt. Thomas had said he was high on PCP last October when he tried to force his way into the armored truck containing more than $2 million in cash.

In his guilty plea, Thomas admitted pursuing the armored truck to Powder Mill and Cherry Hill roads and then engaging in a chase and shootout with police. Thomas was shot in the stomach by police in a standoff after Thomas armed with an assault rifle fled into a private home.
