Cleveland man indicted for robbing five banks in August and September
A Cleveland man was indicted for robbing five banks in August and September.
Anthony Jones, 59, was indicted on five counts of bank robbery.
He is accused of robbing the following banks: U.S. Bank at 1350 Euclid Ave. in Cleveland on Aug. 27; Huntington Bank at 905 Euclid Ave. in Cleveland on Aug. 30; Fifth Third Bank at 600 Superior Ave. in Cleveland on Sept. 4; Citizen’s Bank at 2175 Warrensville Center Road in University Heights on Sept. 6; and Woodforest National Bank at 3400 Steelyard Drive in Cleveland on Sept. 8.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ranya Elzein following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Cleveland Division of Police and University Heights Police Department.
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 records, 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 the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
