The indictment was announced Wednesday by U.S. Attorney, Alice H. Martin and Special Agent in Charge, Carmen S. Adams, Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

Authorities say Drake went into the bank with a weapon and took approximately $9,438.00 in cash. 

He was arrested shortly after the robbery by an Alabama State Trooper. 

Drake remains in police custody. "This young man now faces twenty-five years in prison," stated U.S. Attorney Alice H.
