Texas Man Indicted for Armed Bank Robbery
JEFFERSON CITY, MO—Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Waxahachi, Texas, man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for armed bank robbery.
Richard Wayne Swicegood, 37, of Waxahachi, was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City, Mo.
Today’s indictment alleges that Swicegood used a weapon to steal $2,770 from Boone County National Bank, 2711 Broadway, Columbia, Mo., on June 6, 2012.
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 Anthony P. Gonzalez. It was investigated by the FBI, the Columbia, Mo., Police Department and the Arkansas State Police.
