Man Indicted for Two Suburban Bank Robberies
BIRMINGHAM – A federal grand jury today indicted a Maylene man for two August bank robberies in suburban Birmingham cities, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance and FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard D. Schwein.
An indictment filed in U.S. District Court charges TONY JOE WHITE, 42, with the Aug. 22 robbery of a Wells Fargo bank in Homewood and the Aug. 23 robbery of a Regions Bank in Mountain Brook.
The FBI, in conjunction with the Homewood and Mountain Brook Police Departments, investigated the case, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph P. Montminy is prosecuting.
Members of the public are reminded that an indictment contains only charges. A defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
