Three men accused of stealing money from an ATM in Cheyenne in December will face a March 11 trial in U.S. District Court, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for Wyoming.

Christopher Parish, age 41, London B. Beaudoin, age 19, and Leo Smith, age 20, from Houston, Texas, were arraigned on Jan. 18, according to the release.

CPD spokeswoman Alex Farkas said last month that police were sent to an alarm at 3 a.m. on Saturday, December 2 at UniWyo Federal Credit Union at 5249 Yellowstone Road.

When police arrived, they found a damaged ATM that appeared to be missing cash boxes. An officer followed tire tracks from the scene to the intersection of Education Drive and Manewal Drive and found a Ford F250 truck with a large chain attached to the rear hitch.

The officer turned in his lights and siren and tried to stop the speeding vehicle, a Nissan Murano with four people inside. The car refused to stop, speeding south on Central Avenue with the officer chasing it.

At Last Report, The Men Were Being Held By The Marshalls Service

They are being charged with bank theft in federal court.

According to the release, the three defendants are being held by the U.S. Marshalls Service. If found guilty, each defendant faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.

The case is scheduled to be heard by U.S. District Court Judger Alan Johnson.
