Man pleads guilty to ATM theft

A Kansas City man has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $330,000 from automated teller machines he was supposed to be maintaining for U.S. Bank.

Federal prosecutors say 46-year-old Anthony T. Civella Jr. entered the plea Thursday to bank larceny and money laundering.

From 2011 through 2013, Civella owned and operated C Management Group, which maintained ATMs in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The money in the ATMs belonged to U.S. Bank.

He admitted he obtained a maintenance code to access the machines. He moved money between the ATMs to conceal the thefts about the stolen money by depositing most of it into his personal checking account.

Civella faces a sentence of up to 30 years without parole, plus a fine up to $750,000 and an order of restitution.
