Arkansas Man Indicted for Additional Robberies
|U.S. Attorney’s Office December 13, 2013|
JEFFERSON CITY, MO—Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that a Bella Vista, Arkansas man who was previously indicted for robbing Alliant Bank in Blackwater, Missouri, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for three additional robberies.
Timothy Patrick Hoyt, 43, of Bella Vista, was charged in a four-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City, Missouri, on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. This superseding indictment replaces the original indictment, returned on November 7, 2013, that charged Hoyt with stealing $5,123 from Alliant Bank on June 26, 2013.
The superseding indictment alleges that Hoyt robbed the Subway restaurant at 330 N. Massey Blvd. in Nixa, Missouri, on July 12, 2013; the Subway restaurant at 1820 W. 32nd St. in Joplin, Missouri, on July 14, 2013; and the Sally Beauty Supply Store at 2007-C W. Foxwood Dr. in Raymore, Missouri, on August 6, 2013.
Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
This case is being prosecuted by Supervisory Assistant U.S. Attorney Lawrence E. Miller. It was investigated by FBI; the Cooper County, Missouri Sheriff’s Department; the Altoona, Iowa, Police Department; the Nixa, Missouri Police Department; the Joplin, Missouri Police Department; and the Raymore, Missouri Police Department.
