Four from cleveland indicted for euclid bank robbery
Four people from Cleveland were indicted for their roles in robbing a Euclid bank last month, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Germain D. Davis, Jr., 20, Julian Anderson, 23, Shawn Caldwell, 22, and Dejuan Brown, 24, were each indicted on one count each of armed bank robbery and one count of using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
The indictment alleges that the four men aided and abetted one another in robbing a PNC Bank in Euclid, Ohio, on January 24, 2014. It further alleges that the robbers stole approximately $39,900 from the bank and that they carried and brandished firearms during the robbery.
If convicted, the defendants’ sentences will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendants’ prior criminal record, if any, the defendants’ role in the offense, and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentences will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases they will be less than the maximum.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney M. Kendra Klump and Michelle M. Baeppler following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Euclid 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.
