A federal grand jury Wednesday handed up a new indictment charging Moses Hernandez with seven bank robberies and two gun-related offenses.
Hernandez, 35, was arrested Aug. 12 by FBI agents and a Salt Lake County sheriff's SWAT team in the wake of a string of bank robberies that began in January.Although Hernandez is being investigated in connection with at least 17 bank robberies this year - one-third of all the bank robberies in the county - the grand jury's second superseding indictment names him in only seven.
In almost all the cases, the robber handed tellers a note that said, "Give me the money and no one gets hurt," which earned him the nickname the "No One Gets Hurt" bank robber.
The indictment alleges Hernandez hit Washington Federal Savings Bank, 4748 S. Highland Drive, on Jan. 20, taking $463; Wells Fargo Bank, 1440 S. Foothill Blvd., April 29, $2,350; Brighton Bank, 7101 S. Highland Drive, May 18, $2,700; Wells Fargo Bank, 3776 S. Highland Drive, June 1, $1,680; Bank One, 3020 S. Highland Drive, June 1, $4,128; First Security Bank, 4740 S. 900 East, July 20, $2,110; and U.S. Bank, 2243 E. 2100 South, July 20, $3,349.
He is also charged with two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm. U.S. Magistrate Ronald Boyce has ordered Hernandez held in jail pending further hearings.
