An 18-year-old man has been charged with aiding in the armed robbery of a TCF Bank in Kenosha on Wednesday, the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office said Friday. Garry A. Climmons Jr. of Kenosha faces one count of being party to the armed robbery of a financial institution. If convicted, he faces up to 45 years in prison and a maximum $100,000 fine. According to the criminal complaint, Climmons admitted driving around with his cousin Wednesday morning discussing whether to rob the Chase Bank or TCF branch in Kenosha. Climmons said he drove the car and that his cousin came out empty-handed from the Chase branch before moving onto the TCF branch at 1815 63rd St. around noon. The bank estimated the loss at $699, but Climmons said his cousin gave him only $35. The cousin is being held on a parole/probation violation, according to the Kenosha Police Department.
