OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man accused of robbing a bank in Oshtemo Township now faces a federal charge.
Randell Lee Wicks faces one federal count of armed bank robbery. In September, Wicks was arraigned in a Kalamazoo County court on charges of bank robbery, carrying a concealed weapon, felony firearm possession and obstructing a police officer.
The robbery happened shortly before 5 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Chemical Bank on W. Main Street west of US-131.
Investigators say two robbers, including Wicks, were both masked and armed with handguns. They stole about $13,836 from the bank, according to a federal indictment.
Authorities say that after robbing the bank, the pair ran to a waiting getaway car — possibly a Chevrolet Malibu — in a nearby neighborhood.
Wicks next federal court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
