East Cleveland man indicted for robbing two banks on West 25th Street

An East Cleveland man was indicted for robbing two banks on West 25th Street this year, said Acting U.S. Attorney David A. Sierleja and FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen D. Anthony.

Mark A. Lloyd, 31, robbed the Ohio Savings Bank on Jan. 30 of $918. Two weeks later he robbed the PNC bank of $4,238, according to the indictment.

Lloyd was arrested on Feb. 17 at Cleveland City Hall after a police officer working security there recognized Lloyd, particularly a tattoo of a gun underneath Lloyd’s right eye, according to court documents.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendants’ prior criminal record, 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.

This case was investigating by the FBI and the Cleveland Division of Police. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Elliot D. Morrison and Megan Miller.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
