A 21-year-old man has been charged with robbing a Jonesboro branch of Liberty Bank of Arkansas in April.

Justin Cobb, whose address was unavailable, also faces one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, according to an indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Little Rock.

He is scheduled for plea and arraignment on Sept. 24 in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Beth Deere.

On April 19, Cobb used a short-barreled shotgun to rob the bank of $15,000, according to the indictment.

If convicted, Cobb faces up to 25 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine, or both, on the bank robbery charge and an additional 10 years to life for the brandishing a firearm count.
