Kansas City man pleads guilty to stealing $330K from ATMs

Posted: Updated:

A 46-year-old Kansas City man has pleaded guilty in federal court to stealing more than $330,000 from ATMs that he was hired to maintain.

Anthony T. Civella, Jr. waived his right to indictment by a grand jury and pleaded guilty Thursday to bank larceny and money laundering.

Civella owned and operated C Management Group, LLC, from 2011 to 2013, which serviced ATMs in the Kansas City area. The money in the ATMs belonged to U.S. Bank.

Civella admitted that he stole money from the ATMs by obtaining a maintenance code to access the machines.

The government believes that Civella stole approximately $330,040. Civella moved money between the ATM machines in order to conceal the theft, authorities say.

Civella then commingled the stolen money from the ATMs by depositing most of the cash into his personal checking account.

He admitted that he deposited money from the bank larceny scheme into his personal checking account in order to conceal or disguise the location and source of the proceeds of the bank larceny.

Civella is subject to a sentence of up to 30 years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $750,000 and an order of restitution.

He must also forfeit to the government a $330,040 money judgment.  A sentencing hearing has not been set yet.
