Medina County man indicted for armed robbery of bank in Grafton

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

A Medina County man was indicted for the armed robbery of a bank in Grafton.

Matthew J. Kroffke, 37, brandished a firearm when he robbed the Chemical Bank located at 351 North Main Street on Feb. 23, according to the indictment.

This case was investigated by the FBI and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Zarzycki.

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 violations.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

A charge 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.
