Michigan Man Arrested in West Virginia in Connection to Three Bank Robberies

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Michigan

DETROIT – A fugitive wanted in connection with bank robberies in Hamtramck, Harper Woods, and Hazel Park appeared in federal court this afternoon. Glenn Pack, 23, was arrested by the FBI on January 25, 2024, in West Virginia, and was returned to Michigan earlier this week to face charges, United States Attorney Dawn N. Ison announced.

Ison was joined in the announcement by Special Agent in Charge Cheyvoryea Gibson of the FBI in Michigan.

According to the criminal complaint, Pack is alleged to have robbed a PNC Bank on Joseph Campau Street in Hamtramck on December 19, 2023, a Chase Bank on Vernier Road in Harper Woods on January 2, 2024, and a PNC Bank on S. Chrysler Drive in Hazel Park on January 12, 2024. In all three robberies, Pack posed as a customer and presented the tellers with a note demanding money and stating that he was robbing the bank. Pack is alleged to have made off with over $10,000.

If convicted, Pack faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison for bank robbery. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

“We are grateful for the swift action by the Hamtramck, Harper Woods, and Hazel Park Police Departments in coordinating with the FBI to identify and locate the defendant,” said Cheyvoryea Gibson, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Michigan. “Each law enforcement partner brought a unique skill set which contributed to the successful apprehension by FBI Pittsburgh. The FBI remains committed to investigating thieves and protecting the public from this type of criminal activity.”

A criminal complaint is merely an allegation. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

In addition to the Detroit FBI, this case is being investigated by the Hazel Park Police Department, the Hamtramck Police Department, and Harper Woods Department of Public Safety. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah Alsaden.
