McKees Rocks Man Charged With December Robberies Of 2 Local Banks

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

The two-count indictment named Clarence Troutman, 38, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment, on Dec. 23, 2014, Troutman robbed a First Niagara Bank located at 810 South Aiken Ave, Pittsburgh, Pa.; and on Dec. 30, 2014, Troutman robbed a Citizens Bank located at 31 Foster Avenue, Crafton, Pa. Both of the banks are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

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

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, and the Crafton Borough 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.
