|FBI Cincinnati April 04, 2012|
CINCINNATI—Edward J. Hanko, Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Cincinnati Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); and Carter M. Stewart, U.S. Attorney, Southern District of Ohio, announced today that Delmain L. Fannin, age 45, of Fairborn, Ohio, has been charged in a federal complaint with two counts of violating Title 18, United States Code, Section 2113(a), bank robbery. Each count carries a maximum punishment of 20 years’ imprisonment.
The complaint alleges that on March 30, 2012, Fannin knowingly robbed the PNC Bank located at 1850 South Limestone Street in Springfield, Ohio of an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency. The complaint further alleges that on the same day, Fannin also robbed the Fifth Third Bank located at 3830 Linden Avenue in Dayton, Ohio.
Fannin was originally arrested by Dayton Police after law enforcement officers observed Fannin driving his vehicle away from the area of his Fairborn residence. Fannin refused to comply with the officer’s request to stop his vehicle and fled. Following a chase involving multiple law enforcement agencies, Fannin crashed the vehicle he was driving on U.S. Highway 35 and was taken into police custody.
SAC Hanko and U.S. Attorney Stewart commended Chief Stephen Moody of the Springfield Police Division and Chief Richard Biehl of the Dayton Police Department for the work of their agencies in the investigation. Additionally, they thanked law enforcement officers from the Fairborn, Beavercreek, and Riverside Police Departments for their invaluable assistance in the apprehension of the suspect.
The public is reminded that criminal complaints contain only allegations of criminal misconduct and that a defendant is presumed to be innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
