THIS IS THE POLICE! GIVE ME ALL YOUR MONEY!
MINNEAPOLIS - A federal grand jury has indicted a former Minneapolis police SWAT team member in the robbery of an Apple Valley bank.
Twenty-eight-year-old Timothy Edward Carson of Rosemount had already been charged in the Jan. 6 robbery. The formal indictment filed Wednesday lets the case move forward.
Carson is now charged with one count of armed bank robbery and one firearms count. He faces a maximum potential penalty of 25 years in prison on the bank robbery charge and a mandatory minimum of seven years on the firearms charge.
Carson's next court date has not been set and he has not entered a plea. His attorney was out of the office Wednesday and unavailable for comment.
Authorities say Carson also has confessed to several other armed robberies in the Twin Cities area.
