Pittsburgh Man Charged with Three Robberies at Castle Shannon Dollar Bank

PITTSBURGH - A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of bank robbery, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The three-count indictment, returned on February 7, named John Michael Boden, 30, of Pittsburgh, Pa.

According to the indictment, Boden robbed Dollar Bank, located at 400 Mount Lebanon Boulevard, Castle Shannon, Pa., on October 13, 2016, November 10, 2016, and November 16, 2016.

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 offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Caitlin A. Loughran is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Allegheny County Police Department, the Castle Shannon Police Department, and the Bethel Park 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.
