Bank RobberyBank MessengerArmored Truck
In addition to thefts and robberies committed on bank premises, the
Federal bank robbery statute also may encompass thefts and robberies of bank
messengers and armored truck services. The key factor in determining
violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113 has occurred in such circumstances is
or not the stolen money belonged to or was in the care, custody, control,
management, or possession of a federally protected financial institution.
See United States v. Marzano, 537 F.2d 257 (7th Cir. 1976),
cert. denied, 429 U.S. 1038 (1977).|
Cases in this category also may involve violations of 18 U.S.C.
659 if the money or other property taken constituted an interstate or
shipment which had not reached its destination. Accordingly, the
should encompass not only the facts surrounding the robbery, but should
the contractual relationship between the bank and the messenger service and
duties and functions of such service, particularly with reference to the
or other property taken.
