New Orleans Man Indicted for Walmart Robbery

NEW ORLEANS –U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced today that a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Louisiana has indicted TERRY MADISON, III, age 22, for the robbery of Walmart Money Center in Hammond, Louisiana, on April 14, 2018. If convicted, MADISON faces a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison.

MADISON is accused of robbing the Walmart Money Center of $3,448.10, and then fleeing the location.

U.S. Attorney Evans stated that an indictment is only an allegation, and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. 

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.   Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made turning the tide of rising violent crime in America a top priority.   In October 2017, as part of a series of actions to address this crime trend, Attorney General Sessions announced the reinvigoration of PSN and directed all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to develop a district crime reduction strategy that incorporates the lessons learned since PSN launched in 2001.

U.S. Attorney Evans also praised the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s New Orleans Violent Crime Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Myles Ranier is handling the prosecution.
