A Rock Island man was sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison for robbing a credit union and leading police on a high-speed chase through both Iowa and Illinois, according to a news release from the United States Attorney's Office of the Central District of Illinois.

Roman Thomas Lloyd, 34, is charged with credit union robbery and interstate transportation of stolen money.

Lloyd fled from police at speeds close to 100 mph on both highways and residential streets after the robbery, according to the release. Police attempted to stop Lloyd with stop sticks six times before they were successful, and after his tires were deflated, police used a PIT maneuver to force Lloyd's car off the road.

Lloyd will serve three years of supervised release after his prison sentence. Lloyd's sentence for the credit union robbery and interstate transportation of stolen money will run consecutively to whatever sentences are imposed in two other cases that are pending against him. One of the cases is in Henry County, Illinois, where he is charged with burglary of a pharmacy, theft and aggravated fleeing or eluding a peace officer. The other case is in Clinton County, Iowa, where he is charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree theft and possession of a controlled substance, first offense.

Lloyd was indicted in July 2021 and pleaded guilty in September 2021.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Moline Police Department investigated the case and were assisted by law enforcement officers from Rock Island and Davenport, Iowa. Assistant U.S. Attorney McMeyer represented the government in the prosecution.
