CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man charged last month in an armed bank robbery, now has been indicted for three additional robberies in April and May.

Javon Dockery, 29, was indicted on four counts of bank robbery and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. The charges are contained in a superseding indictment filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court.

Dockery and Bria Daudinot, 21, of Cedar Rapids, were previously charged last month with one count of bank robbery. Daudinot faces no new charges.

According to the Wednesday’s indictment, Dockery robbed the 16th Avenue branch of US Bank April 30, and the Bever Avenue branch of Guaranty Bank on May 16, and May 29. Dockery stole over $20,000 from both banks.

Dockery is also accused of robbing the 16th Avenue branch of US Bank June 26, according to the first indictment. Daudinot was charged with aiding and abetting in that robbery. Dockery brandished a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from two tellers, according to criminal complaint. Dockery left with about $10,327 in cash.

Cedar Rapids police after that robbery identified the suspects’ van, driven by Daudinot who led them on a chase but they were eventually captured. Dockery was found with a large amount of cash on him and officers saw Daudinot throw cash out the van window during the chase and also had cash on her when arrested.

If convicted on all charges, Dockery faces a seven years to life in federal prison and a $1.2 million fine and Daudinot faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Dockery and Daudinot are both held without bond. Their trial is set Sept. 22.
