BOISE – U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced the indictment today of a Boise man currently living in Shreveport, Louisiana, for the March 2013 robbery of a Boise bank.

A one-count indictment filed today in United States District Court for the District of Idaho charges Gerald Edward Massey, 55, with robbing the US Bank located at 10556 Fairview Avenue of $64,500 on March 6, 2013. Massey was arrested by the FBI in Shreveport on Monday; he appeared yesterday in federal court there. An initial appearance in Idaho federal court has not been set.

Massey faces up to 20 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.

An indictment is a means of charging a person with criminal activity. It is not evidence. The person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
