Three Men Indicted in Federal Court for Carjacking

United States Attorney Gregory J. Haanstad announced today that three Milwaukee men were indicted for the July 15, 2015 armed carjacking near Wick Field in Milwaukee.  Sean Harvey (age: 24), Broderick Moore, (age: 23), and Robert Ellis, (age: 25), were charged with one count of motor vehicle robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. Harvey is also charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine base and felon in possession of a firearm.   

If convicted, each man faces up to 15 years in prison on the motor vehicle robbery count and a minimum mandatory sentence of 7 years and up to life in prison on the charge of brandishing of a firearm during a crime of violence. 

This case is being investigated by the FBI’s Milwaukee Area Violent Crimes Task Force and the Milwaukee Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Margaret B. Honrath.

The public is cautioned that an indictment is merely a charge and the defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
