Madison Co. man indicted for bank robbery

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WAFF) -

A federal grand jury indicted a Madison County man for the February 5 robbery of a Madison bank.

According to the indictment, 27-year-old Antonio Lashawn Drake, robbed the BancorpSouth branch on Hughes Road of more than $5,000. Madison Police arrested Drake at a house in Huntsville the day of the robbery.

The bank robbery charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

In January 2008, Drake robbed the North Alabama Bank branch on Winchester Road, then fled into the Flint River. An Alabama State Trooper working on a stalled vehicle saw him and helped track Drake down.

He was convicted in that case, and sentenced to 65 months in prison. Court records show he was released shortly before the February bank robbery.
