A one-count indictment filed today in United States District court for the District of Idaho charges Gerald R. Massey, 42, with robbing the U.S. Bank located at 10556 Fairview Avenue of $64,500 on March 6, 2013. Massey was arrested by the FBI in Shreveport on Monday; he appeared yesterday in federal court there. An initial appearance in Idaho federal court has not been set.

An indictment is a means of charging a person with criminal activity. It is not evidence. The person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
