RSS feed

BOSTON – A Dedham man was indicted today for robbing three Boston area banks.

According to the indictment, in January of this year, Joseph Wilcox, 46, robbed three banks, stealing over $8,000. The indictment alleges that on Jan. 15, Wilcox stole $1,318 from the Blue Hills Bank in Brookline; on Jan. 22, he stole $839 from the Eastern Bank in Cambridge; and on Jan. 25, he stole $6,260 from the TD Bank in Brookline.

The charging statute provides a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Vincent B. Lisi, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Brookline Police Chief Daniel C. O’Leary; and Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert C. Haas, made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlos A. López of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
