2 of 3 plead guilty in Hoagland bank robbery

Two of three men charged in a Hoagland bank robbery pleaded guilty in federal court.

On Monday, Calvin L. Miller, 23, pleaded guilty to armed bank robbery, carrying a firearm during a crime of violence and assaulting an employee of the United States.

In exchange for his guilty plea, a fourth count – brandishing a firearm in relation to a crime of violence – will be dismissed at sentencing.

Last week, Brandon D. Sizemore, 25, pleaded guilty to armed bank robbery.

The case against Charles R. Seals Jr., 24, remains pending, and a trial is scheduled to begin this year.

The three were arrested after investigators say they robbed a Hoagland bank and then led police on a 15-minute high-speed chase into Fort Wayne.

Shortly after the bank opened for the day, two men entered the Wells Fargo Bank, 14816 First St. in Hoagland, with a weapon and demanded money, according to the Allen County Sheriff’s Department.

A third man was waiting in a black Oldsmobile outside the bank.

After the robbery, they fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

Seals is also believed to be connected to the robbery of a PNC bank in 2012, according to court documents.
