Bank robbery suspects face federal charges


Two men who allegedly robbed a Sheffield Lake bank on Jan. 11 were indicted in federal court on robbery charges Thursday.

Andrew Perry, 21, of Lakewood, and Bryce Herring, 18, of Elyria, allegedly entered a Chase Bank, 4100 Lake Road in Sheffield Lake about 11:45 a.m. Jan. 11, and stole an undisclosed amount of money, according to Sheffield Lake Police Chief Tony Campo.

The FBI, Sheffield Lake and the North Olmsted police departments launched an investigation into the incident. About a week later, the two men were taken into custody.

On Thursday, the men pleaded not guilty and were indicted on robbery charges, according to a press release.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew B. Kall is prosecuting the case.

Perry was previously indicted on robbery charges in August for allegedly robbing a bank in Lakewood in July.
