NASHVILLE – A federal grand jury returned an indictment this week charging Tyrone Meriweather, 48, of Nashville, Tennessee, with one count of bank robbery, announced United States Attorney Henry C. Leventis for the Middle District of Tennessee.

According to the criminal complaint and indictment, on October 19, 2023, Meriweather entered a U.S. Bank on Harding Pike in Nashville, Tennessee, and demanded money while brandishing a knife. The bank teller gave Meriweather the money from his drawer, and Meriweather fled on foot.

If convicted, Meriweather faces up to 25 years in federal prison.

This case was investigated by the FBI and the Metro Nashville Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mitchell Galloway is prosecuting the case.

An indictment is merely an allegation. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
