CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Federal authorities have indicted a Maryland couple in connection with a string of bank robberies in central Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania says Jason Dixon, 44, and Shawnette Fleet, 43, both of Essex, Md., are both charged with four counts of robbery.

Authorities say they robbed two credit unions in Chambersburg, one in York and one in Camp Hill spanning from March until August. Prosecutors say they were apprehended while fleeing the Camp Hill robbery on Aug. 10.

If convicted both could face 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each robbery count.
