Twins plead guilty to bank robbery

Twin brothers have pleaded guilty in federal court to robbing Brundidge’s Troy Bank & Trust in April 2007.

Kiven and Kevin Foster, both 22 of Tarentum, were arrested April 28, 2007, for holding up the Brundidge bank with a fake machine gun.

Kiven has been sentenced to 37 months in jail, and Kevin, 46 months, after they pleaded guilty in federal court for holding up the bank and stealing $6,000 in April 2007, according to FBI Media Relations Angie Tobon.

The robbery originally occurred around 10 a.m. April 27.

Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport said after the incident, the fake gun looked real enough to fool bank employees and investigators who watched on surveillance footage.

Davenport said this robbery marked the first bank robbery Brundidge had seen in 30 years, and TB&T officials said it was the first of any branch since its beginning in 1906.
