Iowa man who threatened to shoot people at a mall gets 180 months in prison

DAVENPORT, IA – On February 15, 2013, T. Wayne Allen, Sr., of Davenport, IA, was sentenced to 180 months imprisonment, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. Chief United States District Judge James E. Gritzner also sentenced Allen to four years supervised release following imprisonment and ordered him to pay a $100 special assessment to the crime victim fund.

On August 27, 2011, after Allen made threats to shoot certain people during an argument inside the Davenport, Iowa, Northpark Mall, Davenport police officers stopped and searched Allen, and found a loaded semi-automatic pistol in his pocket. Subsequent investigation revealed that Allen had a least four convictions for armed robbery in Nevada, Iowa, and one armed robbery conviction in Illinois. Allen denied the convictions, but at sentencing the government proved Allen’s identity by a combination of court records, photographs, and fingerprints. Accordingly, Allen was sentenced to a mandatory term of 15 years imprisonment as an Armed Career Criminal.

This case was investigated by the Davenport, Iowa, Police Department, and the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
