Ravenna man charged with armed bank robbery and brandishing a firearm

A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging Cameron Cleveland, 39, of Ravenna, with armed bank robbery and brandishing a firearm during the robbery, said Acting U.S. Attorney David A. Sierleja and FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen D. Anthony.

 

Cameron Cleveland used force, intimidation and a firearm to rob the Huntington Bank in Ravenna on July 10, 2017. On that same day, Cleveland knowingly used and brandished a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, according to the indictment.

 

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.

 

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Ravenna Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David M. Toepfer.

 

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.
