Cleveland man indicted for armed robbery of Middleburg Heights bank

A Cleveland man was indicted in federal court for an armed bank robbery in Middleburg Heights.

Kysen Conway, 22, was indicted on one count of armed bank robbery and one count of using a firearm during a crime of violence.

Conway, on April 24, used, carried or brandished a firearm while robbing the Citizens Bank at 15050 Bagley Road, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than maximum. 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Zarzycki following an investigation by the FBI and Middleburg Heights Police Department.

An indictment is only a charge. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
