A federal grand jury has indicted six men on charges they conspired to steal ATM machines in Prince Georges County.
Indicted were Jarvis Lloyd Brooks, 31, Eugene Jeffrey Jenkins, 23, Stephen Leroy Cure, 22, Tracy Delong Fletcher, 29, Eric Thomas, 48, all of Bowie, and Charles Edward Harrison, 46, of Upper Marlboro.
The two-count indictment charges the defendants with conspiracy to commit bank larceny by stealing several ATMs in various locations in Prince George’s County, as well as attempting to steal construction equipment for use in the thefts.
The indictment alleges that as part of the conspiracy the defendants drove from Maryland to Virginia for the purpose of breaking into an ATM and purchased tools for that purpose. Finally, the indictment alleges that Tracy Fletcher and Eric Thomas stole an ATM containing deposits of $109,763.73 from the Bank of America at 1144 Bowie Town Center, in Bowie.
The defendants face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the conspiracy count. Thomas and Fletcher also face ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the bank larceny charge. Brooks, Jenkins, Cure, Thomas and Harrison have all been arrested and had initial appearances. Fletcher remains a fugitive.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the crimes and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Stephanie Gallagher and Michael Leotta are prosecuting the case.
