SOUTH BEND — Five people from Elkhart were charged in a two-count indictment with robbery affecting interstate commerce and using a firearm in the commission of a violent crime, U.S. Attorney Thomas Kirsch said Thursday.

“I commend the FBI, in addition to the other agencies that participated in solving this case,” Kirsch said. “Violent crimes, like those alleged, will be thoroughly investigated by our law enforcement partners and prosecuted by my Office.”
