Two men were indicted for allegedly robbing banks in Summit County this summer, said Acting U.S. Attorney David A. Sierleja and FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen D. Anthony.
A federal grand jury returned a three-count indictment charging Jacob K. Onusic, 23, of Barberton, and Devonne Jacobs, 23, of Akron, with bank robbery.
Onusic, robbed the PNC Bank in Tallmadge, Ohio on June 23, according to the indictment.
Onusic robbed the Fifth Third Bank in Fairlawn on June 28, according to the indictment.
Onusic and Jacobs robbed the Fifth Third Bank in Stow on July 8, according to the indictment.
If convicted, the defendants’ sentences will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Tallmadge Police Dept., the Fairlawn Police Dept., the Stow Police Dept., and the Akron Police Depart. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S Attorney David M. Toepfer.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
