NEW HAVEN WOMAN CHARGED WITH BANK ROBBERY
Nora R. Dannehy, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that a grand jury sitting in New Haven has returned an indictment charging MARTA LOZADA, 42, of Orchard Street, New Haven, with one count of bank robbery. The indictment was returned today.
The indictment alleges that, on February 4, 2010, LOZADA robbed a Bank of America branch located at 100 Amity Road in New Haven of approximately $4,858.
If convicted, LOZADA faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years and a fine of up to $250,000.
U.S. Attorney Dannehy stressed that an indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the Government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
This case is being investigated by the New Haven Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Calvin B. Kurimai.
