Bank robbery suspects to be indicted

T he Vermont couple accused of a series of bank robberies, including two at TD Bank on Main Street in Granville, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Vermont.

John W. Maynard, 30, and Jill M. Ludwig, 30, who were from Castleton, were indicted in the U.S. District Court in Rutland on three counts of bank robbery and one of conspiracy. The robbery counts involve banks in Poultney, West Rutland, and Rutland, Vt. The conspiracy count is directly tied to the two October robberies in Granville.

Maynard is accused of being in the bank for the West Rutland and Rutland robberies, as well as one of the Granville robberies. Ludwig is accused of being in the bank for the other Granville robbery and the Poultney robbery. The couple was captured by police in Castleton after the Poultney robbery.

The spree ended Nov. 2, about 90 minutes after the Citizens Bank branch in Poultney, Vt., was held up. A witness got a description and license plate of a getaway car, leading to the couple’s arrest in Castleton.

Washington County District Attorney Kevin Kortright had said previously he would allow federal authorities to prosecute the Granville cases if they chose to. Both suspects are in jail in Vermont.
