Cleveland man charged with robbing shaker Heights banks
A Cleveland man was indicted on charges related to the robbery of a Shaker Heights bank, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Charles D. Moore, 28, was indicted on one count of armed bank bobbery. This charge arises from the July 9, 2013, bank robbery of the PNC Bank at 20711 Chagrin Boulevard. in Shaker Heights, Ohio, when Moore held the bank manager at gunpoint and stole approximately $46,000 from the bank's tellers, according to the indictment.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant's prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Margaret A. Sweeney following an investigation by the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Field Offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Shaker Heights Police Department.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
