RALEIGH, N.C. — Two North Carolina men have been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with an armored car robbery in which the suspects took more than $1 million last June.
U.S. Attorney Thomas Walker announced Friday that 29-year-old Charles Richard Moore and 33-year-old Lenard Cornelius Smith were indicted on several charges, including using or carrying a firearm during a crime of violence.
The two men made their first court appearances on Friday. It wasn’t immediately known if they had attorneys.
Authorities say two armed men took $1,210,440 from an armored vehicle while it was parked next to an automated teller machine at a Bank of America branch in Washington.
A third person, Emmanuel Wallace III of Hurdle Mills, is charged in a separate indictment and is in custody.
