Federal jury indicts 5 in separate bank heists

Jackson
Copeland
Andrews
Bure
Vanschoick

– A federal grand jury meeting in Fort Wayne indicted two separate groups of people in connection with a pair of unrelated bank robberies.

On Wednesday, the grand jury indicted the three people arrested last week after the robbery of Power 1 Federal Credit Union at 1520 Spy Run Ave.

Trey Jackson, 24, and DeAngelo Copeland, 34, were each named in two counts of the three-count indictment.

The men are charged with armed bank robbery and use of a firearm during a violent crime.

A third person arrested in that bank robbery case was also indicted. Nicole Andrews, 35, was charged with armed bank robbery and accessory after the fact, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Hammond.

Andrews and Copeland are married.

According to court documents, Andrews dropped Copeland and Jackson off at a nearby gas station before the robbery.

Also indicted were two Fort Wayne men accused in the 2011 robbery of a New Haven bank.

Michael Clayton Bure, 27, and Matthew Lester Vanschoick, 28, were each indicted on a single count of bank robbery stemming from the October 2011 robbery of a PNC bank branch at 411 Lincoln Highway West.

According to court documents, Vanschoick is accused of robbing the bank, while Bure waited outside in a getaway vehicle.

They made off with a little more than $2,000 – and used the money to buy presents for their children and a Bible for a friend.
