ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man has been convicted of federal charges stemming from armed robberies around the metro. David Savoy Thomas, 55, was one of the “worst of the worst” offenders targeted by the feds.
His crime spree started in 2010 when he held up a McDonalds for just $60. Three years later police say Thomas used a knife to hold up a Family Dollar twice in one week. Two months after that, he returned to the same shopping center using a gun to get nearly $4,000 from a Check n Go. When police went to arrest Thomas in 2013, he bit the officer’s thumb.
Thomas was found guilty Wednesday and faces 20 years in prison but he could get life if he’s deemed a career criminal.
