GREENBELT, Maryland - United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein announces that today a federal grand jury has returned a superseding indictment against Randy Sean Harris, age 40 of Washington, D.C., for crimes committed in connection with a series of violent robberies.
The eight-count superseding indictment charges Harris with attempted robbery of the Bank of America at 13311 New Hampshire Avenue in Silver Spring on April 14, 2005; the robbery of a U.S. Postal Service window clerk on April 20, 2005; the robbery of a U.S. Postal Service truck driver on June 30, 2005; and the attempted interference with commerce by robbery of a Dunbar armored vehicle in Silver Spring on July 13, 2005. The indictment also charges Harris with using and carrying a firearm during each of the robberies.
The maximum penalties for the attempted bank robbery and each of the two Postal Service robberies are twenty-five years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. The maximum penalties for the robbery of the Dunbar armored car are twenty years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. If convicted of the firearms charges Harris faces a mandatory minimum of 7 years imprisonment for the first conviction and a mandatory minimum of 25 years imprisonment for each additional conviction, consecutive to any other term of imprisonment imposed. The maximum penalty for each of the firearms charges is life imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. The defendant has not yet been scheduled for an arraignment on the charges in this superseding indictment. The defendant is currently detained in Prince George’s County under state charges.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the investigative work performed by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Montgomery County Police Department. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig M. Wolff for prosecuting the case.
