Man indicted after string of bank robberies in the Tri-State

CINCINNATI -- A man was indicted Wednesday on charges that he robbed seven banks in central and southwestern Ohio between Dec. 28, 2013 and Feb. 4, 2014.

Federal officials say Michael Hay, 30, of Columbus, robbed a PNC Bank in Mount Washington on Dec. 28 , a Huntington Bank in Miami Township on Jan. 29, a Chase bank in Mason on Feb. 4, and four other banks outside the Tri-state area. Federal officials did not release how much money was taken from the seven banks.

Hay was arrested by Grove City, Ohio police officers on Feb. 7.

Each count of bank robbery is punishable by up to 20 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release and restitution.

Hay was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon in Dayton.
