McKees Rocks Man Charged with Robbing Bridgeville Bank

PITTSBURGH - One resident of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of bank robbery, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.

The one-count Indictment named Anthony West, age 28, formerly of Dohrman Street, as the sole defendant.

According to a publicly filed Complaint, on September 16, 2021, West entered a bank location in Bridgeville, PA and threatened or intimidated an employee, secured U.S. currency in the custody of the bank, and fled.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 20 years in prison, a fine, or a combination thereof. 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.

Assistant United States Attorney Brian W. Castello is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation 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.
