Galion men indicted on bank robbery charges

Two Galion men have been indicted by a Federal Grand Jury and will be arraigned on Jan. 12 in a Cleveland courtroom.

Taylor Crisman, 18, and Chris Hill, 23, are being charged with 11 counts including bank robbery, possession of ransom money, hostage taking and brandishing a firearm in relation to the commission of a felony.

The two men were arrested in December in Galion for the bank robbery of the Ontario branch of KeyBank.

Crisman is accused of forcing the bank manager to take nearly $200,000 from the bank in November while holding the man’s family hostage. Hill was indicted for allegedly driving the car getaway vehicle for Crisman and intimidation of a witness.
