PITTSBURGH, PA – A resident of Evans City, Pennsylvania has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on one charge of bank robbery, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The one-count Indictment, returned on March 5, names Chad Vaughan, 32, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment, on October 23, 2018, Vaughan robbed the NexTier Bank, located at 226 South Main Street, Zelienople, PA 16063.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than twenty (20) years in prison, a fine of not more than $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.
