Las Vegas Man Indicted for Felony Bank Larceny Allegedly Stole Three ATM Machines in Idaho
BOISE – Clarence Edward Lancaster, 57, of Las Vegas, Nevada, was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury in Boise on two counts of felony bank larceny, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. An arraignment date has not yet been set.
The indictment alleges that Lancaster stole three automatic teller machines (ATMs) from two college campuses in Idaho. Specifically, Lancaster allegedly took an ATM machine from the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, Idaho, and stole $39,760 from the machine. The indictment also alleges that Lancaster took two ATMs from Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho, and stole a total of $9,000 from those machines.
If convicted, Lancaster faces up to ten years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.
The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boise Police Department, Pocatello Police Department, and Twin Falls Police Department.
An indictment is only an allegation of criminal conduct and is not evidence of guilt. A person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
