Conway Man Indicted for Bank Robbery
SPRINGFIELD, MO—Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Conway, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for robbing Central Bank in Conway.
Jody L. Nave, 37, of Conway, was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo. Today’s indictment replaces a federal criminal complaint that was filed against Nave on Nov. 24, 2015.
According to an affidavit filed in support of the original criminal complaint, Nave entered Central Bank, 602 W. Jefferson Ave., at approximately 10:14 a.m. on Nov. 12, 2015. Nave allegedly passed a note to a teller that read, “This is a robbery I have a gun but please don’t make me use it.” (sic) The teller handed over approximately $2,600 from her teller drawer, the affidavit says. Nave allegedly took the cash and left the bank.
Nave was located by law enforcement officers a short time later in Marshfield, Mo.
Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James J. Kelleher. It was investigated by the Conway, Mo., Police Department and the FBI.
