HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Harrisburg man has been indicted on charges he twice robbed a Mechanicsburg bank.

In both incidents, the robber wore a mask when he demanded cash from tellers. No weapon was displayed and no one was injured.

The indictment filed Wednesday also alleges Miles tried to rob the Community State Bank of Orbisonia in Waterfall, in Fulton County, on May 31.

Brandler said the maximum prison term under federal law for each count of bank robbery is 20 years.
