PITTSBURGH, Pa – A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of violating the federal robbery laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The two-count indictment named Jaymar Henderson, age 58, formerly of Pittsburgh’s Larimer neighborhood, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on July 2, 2019, Henderson robbed the PNC Bank, located at 225 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, of $121.00. On the same day, Henderson also robbed the Citizens Bank, located at 6112 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, of $1,400.00.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 20 years in prison, a fine of not more than $250,000, or both, at each count. 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.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police 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.
