Mansfield Trio Charged for Bank Robberies

A federal grand jury returned a four-count indictment charging Kyle A. Tesca, age 21, Caleb A. Lambert, age 21, and Kollin  J. Tesca, age 19, all of Mansfield, Ohio, with armed bank robbery and brandishing firearms during the bank robberies, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The indictment alleges in Count 1 that on December 15, Kyle A. Tesca, Caleb A. Lambert, and Kollin J. Tesca robbed the Richland Bank located at 460 West Cook Road, Mansfield, Ohio.   Count 3 alleges that on January 15, 2015, they robbed the Chase Bank located at 1094 Lexington Avenue, Mansfield, Ohio.

 The indictment further alleges in Counts 2 and 4 that Kyle A. Tesca and Caleb A. Lambert brandished firearms during each of the bank robberies.

If convicted, a 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.

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Mansfield Office.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Linda H. Barr.

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.
