Michigan Men Charged With Bank Robbery Of BNB In Highland

22 year old Ramsey Z. Fakhouri and 18 year old Alexander P. Gerth, both of Troy, Michigan, were indicted by a federal grand jury on Thursday with alleged bank robbery.

Documents filed with the court allege that on February 14 the defendants robbed the Bradford National Bank in Highland $25,780, which they obtained by force, violence, and intimidation from a bank employee as the bank employee was re-stocking the bank’s ATM machine.

The bank robbery statute carries maximum possible penalties of 20 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine, or both, and three years’ supervised release.
