A federal grand jury has charged a New Jersey man with one count of bank theft, the Department of Justice says.
DOJ officials say that the charge says that Justin Cabot, 50, robbed the Bank of Delmarva in Laurel in the afternoon of June 24, 2022, by giving the teller a note demanding cash. According to the complaint, Cabot stole $1,806 and a GPS device worth $796.
The DOJ says that Cabot could get up to 20 years in jail and a $250,000 fine if he is found guilty. The U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other legal factors will be used by a federal district court judge to decide on a punishment.
The news was made by David C. Weiss, who is the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware. This case is being looked into by the Laurel Police Department, with help from the FBI. The case is being tried by Assistant U.S. Attorney Eli H. Klein.
