Memphis, TN – A federal grand jury in the Western District of Tennessee recently returned a multi-count indictment charging four men with conspiracy to commit bank robberies, and the commission of six bank robberies in the Memphis area.  Robert Haley, 44, Devin Hinds, 34, Courtney Trenell, 32, and Monterrio Trenell, 28, were all indicted by a federal grand jury in April.  All four men have been arrested.  United States Attorney Kevin G. Ritz announced the unsealing of the indictment today. 

The four men are charged in connection with the robberies of: 

  • First Horizon Bank, N. Watkins Street, on April 27, 2023

  • First Horizon Bank, N. Watkins Street, on October 25, 2023
  • Independent Bank, Union Avenue, on December 22, 2023 

United States Attorney Kevin Ritz said: “The alleged crimes in this indictment are serious, and they carry serious penalties.  Our office will continue to work with law enforcement partners to double down on fighting violent crime with the federal tools available to us.”

“These indictments are a testament to the collaborative efforts between all levels of law enforcement to bring to justice those who perpetrate crimes in our community,” said Special Agent in Charge Douglas S. DePodesta of the Memphis Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “It is the shared resolve of the FBI and our partners to keep our community safe and to continue to pursue those who commit crimes.” 

If convicted on all counts, Hinds and Haley are facing sentences of up to life in prison and up to five years of supervised release; Courtney Trenell and Montarrio Trenell face sentences of five years in prison and up to three years of supervised release. All defendants face up to a $250,000 fine. This case is pending before Senior United States District Judge Jon P. McCalla in Memphis, Tennessee.  

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Streets Task Force and the Memphis Police Department. Anyone with additional information on this case is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 901-528-2274.

The charges and allegations contained in the indictment are merely accusations of criminal conduct, not evidence. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and convicted through due process of law.

Assistant United States Attorney Greg Wagner and Department of Justice Trial Attorney Aaron Henricks with the Violent Crime Initiative are prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.
