Cleveland woman indicted for bank robberies in Highland Heights, Euclid and Bedford
A Cleveland woman was indicted for her role in bank robberies in Highland Heights, Bedford and Euclid, said Carole S. Rendon, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Te’aira Perry, 26, was indicted on three counts of bank robbery.
The indictment alleges that Perry and others aided and abetted one another in robbing a U.S. Bank in Highland Heights on June 26, 2013, of approximately $13,400, and attempting to rob a Charter One Bank in Bedford on August 21, 2013. It further alleges that Perry and four men – Germain D. Davis, Jr., Julian Anderson, Shawn Caldwell, and Dejuan Brown – aided and abetted one another in robbing a PNC Bank in Euclid, on January 24, 2014, of approximately $39,900.
Davis, Anderson, Caldwell, and Brown all pleaded guilty to this robbery in 2014.
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 offenses, and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentences will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases they will be less than the maximum.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney M. Kendra Klump following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Highland Heights Police Department, the Bedford Police Department and the Euclid Police Department.
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.
