Naples Man Indicted for Two Armed Bank Robberies
FORT MYERS, FL—United States Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announces an indictment charging John Robert Haldemann (30, Naples) with two counts of armed bank robbery. Each count carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in federal prison. The indictment also notifies Haldemann that the United States is seeking a money judgment in the amount of $12,308.00, the total proceeds of the armed bank robberies.
According to the indictment, on July 12, 2014, Haldemann committed an armed robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank, in Naples. The indictment further alleges that on July 25, 2014, he committed an armed robbery at a Bank of America in Punta Gorda.
An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation 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, and the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David G. Lazarus.
