Bonners Ferry man indicted over ATM theft, shooting

January 15, 2014 

A man suspected of breaking into a bank ATM in McCall, stealing $26,120 and firing at police as he tried to get away was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Boise.

Nathan Paul Davenport, 34, is accused of use of a deadly weapon and bank larceny by use of a dangerous weapon. A witness saw a masked man place a chain around the Idaho First Bank ATM and yank it from the wall at about 9 p.m. Friday. The witness called 911 and provided a description of the man, the pickup he left the scene in and the truck's direction of travel.

McCall police officers located the pickup two minutes later and gave chase. Police said the man stopped twice and fired at officers. The chase ended when bullets immobilized their patrol cars.

No one was injured.

Davenport and Matthew Taber Annable, 39, were arrested Sunday in Orem, Utah. They were accused of a separate ATM robbery in Douglas, Wyo.

The two men appeared Monday in federal court in Salt Lake City on a federal complaint charging them with the Wyoming theft, which took place Dec. 8.

If convicted of use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, Davenport would face a mandatory sentence of at least 10 years in prison up to life. The bank larceny charge carries a sentence of up to 25 years in prison. He would also face fines of up to $250,000 for each count.
