Back page: Man robs same bank after release from prison

CLEVELAND — A 47-year-old Ohio man has been charged with robbing a suburban Cleveland bank — the same bank he pleaded guilty to robbing in 1999 and for which he served a prison sentence of nearly six years. Larry Hewitt of Garfield Heights and his alleged accomplice, 33-year-old Marcus Wright of Cleveland, were indicted in federal court on Wednesday for robbing an Ohio Savings Bank branch last November of $6,240. They were arrested in December by members of a federal fugitive task force. Hewitt also is charged with brandishing a firearm and being a felon in possession of a weapon. He was convicted of robbing the same Richmond Heights bank of $163,000 in 1999 with a different accomplice. No attorney information could be found for the men.
