Cleveland - Justin. E. Herdman, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, announced Friday that a federal grand jury in Cleveland has returned a one-count indictment charging 26-year-old Travone D. Edwards, of Lorain, with one count of interference with commerce by means of robbery.
According to the criminal complaint filed in this matter, on February 28th, 2020, a lone suspect, later identified as Edwards, entered the GenFed Financial Credit Union (GFCU) located on Oberlin Ave in Lorain, Ohio.
Edwards gave a note to the bank teller demanding that the teller “Put all 50’s and 100’s in the bag, don’t say anything, make a scene, or call the police or I will shoot”. The teller complied, and Edwards fled the scene.
Edwards was later identified during the ensuing investigation and was arrested on April 17th by the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Task Force on multiple outstanding warrants.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the FBI with the help of Lorain Police Department, and the matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Scott C. Zarzycki.
