May 5, 2011

     The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a grand jury in Harrisburg indicted Terrance Baker, 40, of Philadelphia, yesterday, charging him with bank robbery and robbery affecting interstate commerce.

     According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, the indictment alleges that on December 9, 2010, Baker robbed a bar in York, Pennsylvania, and escaped with approximately $500 in cash from the register. Two days later, Baker robbed the Integrity Bank, also in York, of approximately $1730 in cash. Baker was later arrested on a warrant issued after he was identified by witnesses and through video surveillance photos.

     If convicted, Baker faces up to twenty years’ imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.

     The investigation was conducted by the FBI and the York Police Department. Prosecution has been assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Wesley P. Page.
