Buffalo Man Charged with August 2015 Robbery of Bellevue Bank

PITTSBURGH - A resident of Buffalo, New York, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of bank robbery, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The one-count indictment named Casey Swain, 37, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment presented to the court, on or about Aug. 7, 2015, Swain stole $4,970 from the First Niagara Bank located at 484 Lincoln Avenue, Bellevue, Pennsylvania.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Ryan K. Hart is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Bellevue Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
