I-55 Bandit Charged With One Count Of Bank Robbery

St. Louis, MO – ANDREW MABERRY, who the FBI referred to as the I-55 Bandit, was charged with the July 2, 2013, robbery of the Commerce Bank in Jefferson County, Missouri.

Maberry, O’Fallon, IL, was indicted by a federal grand jury on one felony count of bank robbery.  The federal investigation is continuing.

If convicted, this charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000. In determining the actual sentences, a Judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with assistance from multiple law enforcement agencies from several states. Assistant United States Attorney Tom Mehan is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt.  Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
