Shannon Levar Stewart, 41, is facing a charge of first degree robbery, a Class A felony punishable with up to life imprisonment and/or a $50,000 fine. It is doubtful that he will receive either of the two maximum options. Let's see why.
Just after 3:30 pm on July 8, 2019, Stewart, homeless and hungry, walked into an Lakewood, Washington Heritage Bank, heading straight to a teller and passing her a handwritten note reading: "This is a ROBBary give me money no GPS or DyE packs and no one wiLL get hurt." [Capitalization in the original.]
The teller handed over some cash, and Stewart left for Safeway - where he spent $30 on groceries and alcohol. After his lavish shopping spree, Stewart attempted to call a cab, but got spooked over the wait time and instead walked to the bus. Hot on his trail by then and certainly not hindered by the fact that Stewart was wearing an ankle GPS tracker, local law enforcement picked Stewart up while he was waiting for the bus.
This is the interview of Shannon Levar Stewart, perhaps the most casual interrogation of a bank robber you will ever see.
