BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a man in connection with the January robbery of a bank in Bismarck.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Robert Wolter was stopped Feb. 5 at Newark Liberty International Airport by U.S. Department of Homeland Security for a routine outbound currency examination. Wolter had declared he was traveling with $6,000 in U.S. currency. He was found to be in possession of $10,595. Authorities say Wolter was attempting to board an Ethiopian Airlines airplane headed from Newark to Lome, Togo.


In addition to the robbery charge, Wolter faces a charge of bulk cash smuggling.

Court documents do not list a lawyer for Wolter.
