The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced yesterday, October 24, 2011, that an indictment was returned on October 19, 2011, charging an Essex, Maryland couple with bank robbery.
According to U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith, the defendants Jason R. Dixon, 44, and Shawnette R. Fleet, 43, are each facing 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine on each count if convicted.
Fleet and Dixon were charged with the following alleged four bank robberies in South-Central Pennsylvania:
- March 10, 2011—American Community Federal Credit Union, 405 Wayne Ave, Chambersburg, PA—$11,000.
- May 10, 2011—Patriot Federal Credit Union, 140 South Federal Street, Chambersburg, PA—$33,907.
- July 28, 2011—AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union, 1 Indian Rock Dam Road, York, PA—$ 8,600.
- August 10, 2011—AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union, 433 South 18th Street, Camp Hill, PA—$2,700.
The two were apprehended fleeing the August 10, 2011 robbery in Camp Hill while traveling south on Route 83.
This investigation was conducted by the Harrisburg FBI, the Northwest Regional Police Department, the Lower Allen Township Police Department, the Chambersburg Police Department, and the York Area Regional Police Department.
An indictment or information is not evidence of guilt but simply a description of the charge made by the grand jury and/or United States Attorney against a defendant. A charged defendant is presumed innocent until a jury returns a unanimous finding that the United States has proven the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt or until the defendant has pled guilty to the charges.
