Naples Man Indicted for Additional Armed Bank Robbery
FORT MYERS, FL—United States Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announces the return of a superseding indictment charging John Robert Haldemann (30, Naples) with three counts of armed bank robbery. He faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in federal prison for each robbery. The indictment also notifies Haldemann that the United States is seeking a money judgment in the amount of $14,308.00, the total proceeds of the robberies.
According to the superseding indictment, Haldemann committed three armed bank robberies in Southwest Florida, including Capital Bank in Venice; Wells Fargo Bank in Naples; and a Bank of America in Punta Gorda.
An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Violent Crimes Task Force, the Punta Gorda Police Department, the Naples Police Department, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the Venice Police Department, and the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David G. Lazarus.
