An Illinois man was convicted last week of robbing two banks last year, robberies that were committed while he was on supervised release for committing two other bank robberies, authorities said.

Demontrion Deshan Phillips, 28, stole $5,930 during an April 27, 2021 robbery from Midland States Bank in Rockford, and another $4,408 in a robbery from Midland States Bank in Belvidere weeks later, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

He was found guilty of four counts of bank robbery after a four-day trial.

Federal prosecutors said Phillips posed as a customer and handed tellers a deposit slip and announced he was robbing the bank.

In the Belvidere robbery, he threatened a teller by saying, “Don’t make me go through the counter,” after they didn’t give him as much money as he demanded, prosecutors said.

Three days after that robbery, police searched his Rockford home and found $5,090 in cash hidden in a sock.

The cash included numerous bills identified by serial numbers as stolen from banks during the two heists, authorities said.

The robberies occurred while Phillips was out on court supervision following a federal conviction for two bank robberies in 2017 in Rockford.
