Youngstown man indicted for four bank robberies
A Youngstown man was indicted for four bank robberies that took place earlier this year, said Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
G. Shannon McColor, 27, was indicted on four counts of bank robbery.
Count one of the indictment alleges that on or about January 9, 2015, McColor robbed the Huntington Bank, Boardman, Ohio.
Count two of the indictment alleges that on or about February 4, 2015, McColor robbed the PNC Bank, Struthers, Ohio.
Count three of the indictment alleges that on or about February 6, 2015, McColor robbed the Fifth Third Bank, Toledo, Ohio.
Count four of the indictment alleges that on or about February 14, 2015, McColor robbed the Chase Bank, Canfield, Ohio.
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, the Boardman Police Department, the Struthers Police Department, the Toledo Police Department and the Canfield Police Department. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States 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.
