Man indicted for armed robbery of bank he previously robbed

(WOIO) - A federal grand jury returned a four-count indictment charging two northeast Ohio men with multiple criminal counts related to a bank robbery in Richmond Heights in 2014, according to Steven Dettelbach, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The grand jury charged Larry Hewitt, 47, of Garfield Heights, with armed bank robbery, brandishing a firearm in commission of a bank robbery, and two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The grand jury charged Marcus Wright, 33, of Cleveland, with armed bank robbery. The charges stem from the Nov. 6, 2014 robbery of the Ohio Savings Bank branch located at 720 Richmond Road in Richmond Heights.

In 2000, Hewitt pleaded guilty to robbing the same bank.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Cronin is prosecuting the case following an investigation by the FBI, Richmond Heights Police Department, and other local law enforcement agencies.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial where it is the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
