Pittsburgh Man Facing Bank Robbery Charges

PITTSBURGH, PA – A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of conspiracy and committing bank robbery, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The two-count indictment, returned on July 10, named Mark Hammond, 54, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on or about January 10, 2018, Hammond conspired with another individual to rob Huntington Bank located at 650 Smithfield Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

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

Assistant United States Attorneys Rebecca L. Silinski and Timothy M. Lanni are prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and 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.
