Four Houston Men Indicted in San Antonio for ATM Robbery Scheme

In San Antonio today, a federal grand jury returned an indictment against four Houston men for allegedly stealing approximately $80,000 from a bank ATM technician in San Antonio last month, announced U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Hoff and FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs.

The indictment charges 21-year-old Terrance Raynard McDuffy, 24-year-old DeWitt Eugene Ross Jr., 22-year-old Tavan Marque Foots and 25-year-old Jonathan DeWayne Fore with one count of bank robbery.  According to court records, on February 11, 2021, McDuffy and Ross approached a serviceman working on an ATM at a Chase Bank branch in San Antonio and stole multiple ATM cassettes which contained a total of $80,340, while Foots and Fore acted as lookouts for the operation.

FBI agents arrested all four defendants following the robbery.  McDuffy and Ross remain in federal custody.   Foots and Fore are out on bond.  No further court dates have been scheduled.

The defendants face up to 20 years in federal prison upon conviction.

The FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force and San Antonio Central Texas Violent Crime Task Force are investigating this case together with the FBI in Houston, Houston Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigations Division and San Antonio Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney William F. Calve is prosecuting this case. 

An indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt.  The defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
