FORT MYERS, FL—United States Attorney Robert E. O’Neill announces the return of an indictment charging Daniel Glen Ball (36, Lee County) with three counts of bank robbery. If convicted, Ball faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison for each count. The indictment also notifies Ball that the United States intends to forfeit the proceeds of the offenses.
According to the indictment, Ball robbed three banks between February 25, 2013 and March 1, 2013. Ball allegedly robbed a Fifth Third Bank on February 25, 2013; an Edison National Bank on February 28, 2013; and another Fifth Third Bank on March 1, 2013.
An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Fort Myers Police Department, Lee County Sheriff’s Office, and the United States Marshals Service Regional Fugitive Task Force. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David G. Lazarus.
