Two Savannah men charged with the September armed robbery of a Rincon credit union will be arraigned in federal court Wednesday.
Stafon Davis and Rashamel Bradford were arrested just hours after the Sept. 21 holdup of the GeoVista credit union on Highway 21. They are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning in front of U.S. Magistrate G.R. Smith at the federal courthouse in Savannah.
In documents filed with the U.S. District Court Southern District of Georgia, according to four employees of the credit union, Davis and Bradford entered the business just after 10 a.m. on Sept. 21 and immediately brandished firearms. The four employees were forced into a small office and then one of the employees was taken by one of the gunmen, later identified as Davis, to the cash drawers.
