NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – THEODORE KEYS, age 40, a resident of New Orleans; TYRIK SCOTT, age 20, a resident of Chalmette; JUSTIN PIERCE, age 22, a resident of Slidell; and BRISHUN GARY, age 18, a resident of New Orleans, were indicted for conspiracy to commit bank larceny, announced U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser.

According to the indictment, on or about February 5, 2020, KEYS, SCOTT, PIERCE, and GARY attempted to break into an ATM located in the drive-through of a Capital One Bank using sledgehammers, crowbars, chains, and a truck. If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of 5 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.

United States Attorney Strasser reiterated that the indictment is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.  

U.S. Attorney Strasser praised the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Orleans Police Department in investigating this matter.  The prosecution of this case is being handled by Assistant U. S. Attorney G. Dall Kammer, Supervisor of the General Crimes Unit.
