PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The FBI has charged a 20-year-old Philadelphia man with helping guide a bank vault containing $104,000 onto a stolen forklift in the mayhem that followed protests over racial injustice on May 31.
Officials say a city officer identified the suspect seen on video based on distinctive arm tattoos, even though he was wearing a wig.
Federal prosecutors say a crowd had broken into the bank and secured the vault before someone arrived with a shotgun and scared them off.
However, they say Raphael Shaw returned and helped the forklift driver make off with the vault. Shaw is scheduled for a detention hearing on Tuesday.
