Two Savannah teenagers were in U.S. Magistrate Court on Thursday for Tuesday morning’s attempted holdup of a Rincon credit union.
Rashamel Bradford, 18, and Stafon Davis, 18, were arrested minutes after they attempted to rob the GeoVista Credit Union on Columbia Avenue, according to authorities. They had an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate G.R. Smith and are scheduled to return to federal court Sept. 27.
They also are being investigated for a string of bank and credit union holdups throughout the Coastal Empire.
“The logical steps for our investigators are to look at these individuals as possibly being responsible for other similar robberies,” said FBI Special Agent Steven Emmett. “Further charges can be easily added if evidence is developed that they are responsible for these other robberies.”
