4 indicted on federal robbery charges

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A federal grand jury has returned indictments against four men on robbery charges after a string of violent crimes in October 2012.

The indictments against Jescell Whittle, Tony Trumbo, Jr., Dahntel Newsome and James Gore accuse them of disrupting interstate commerce by robbery.

The robberies the four are accused of committing include one at a Poplar Level Road gas station, along with the holdups of two Cricket Wireless stores and the JC Cigarette Outlet on Broadway.

The charges in the Project Recoil case could put the men behind bars for anywhere from 30 to 100 years.

All defendants, except Newsome, face an additional count of brandishing and discharging a firearm, during a robbery.
