Toledo man indicted for robbing two banks last month

A Toledo man was indicted for robbing two banks last month.

Robert Andrew Harris, 41, was indicted on two counts of bank robbery. Harris is accused of robbing the Citizens Bank on South Detroit Street in Toledo on July 9 and the Fifth Third Bank on Woodville Road in Northwood on July 11.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing 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 violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.  

The investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Matthew Simko.  

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The burden of proof is always on the government to prove a defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
