CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Two men accused of robbing an armored car in April have been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Robert Lee Brown II , 26, of West Ashley, and Rashad Dingle, 31, of North Charleston, were charged in a five-count indictment, First Assistant U.S. Attorney Lance Crick said. The indictment alleges a robbery affecting interstate commerce and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, he said.

Dingle is also charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition.

Both men face a maximum penalty of up to life in federal prison.

Dorchester County deputies say the men robbed a Brinks Truck located in an Ashley Phosphate Road parking lot on April 10.

“The robbery happened in the parking lot of the Food Lion in the 3700 block of Ashley Phosphate Road while the truck was servicing an ATM,” Dorchester County Sheriff’s Maj. Tony Phinney said.

The suspects left with an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene in what was believed to be a 2010 or newer Infinity sedan turning towards Dorchester Road on Ashley Phosphate, according to the sheriff’s office.
