Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that two Joplin, Mo., men have been indicted by a federal grand jury for the armed robbery of Pinnacle Bank in Joplin.
Sean Ladue, 29, and Jimmy Eisenhour, 36, both of Joplin, were charged in a two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo., on Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2016.
The federal indictment alleges that Ladue and Eisenhour used a firearm to rob Pinnacle Bank, 1316 E. 32nd Street, Joplin, on Nov. 14, 2016.
Ladue and Eisenhour are also charged with using a firearm during a crime of violence.
Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James J. Kelleher. It was investigated by the Joplin, Mo., Police Department and the FBI.
