The four suspects rounded up Tuesday in connection with the recent string of city bank robberies were arraigned in federal court Wednesday, according to federal officials.

Greg Davis, 41, no address available, was charged with three counts of federal bank robbery in Tuesday's holdup of an HSBC branch on Main Street and robberies Monday at a Bank of America location on East Delavan Avenue and the M&T Bank at the Broadway Market last week.

Davis was also charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit federal bank robbery in the heists this week.

Phyllis Cotton, 47; James Glenn, 32; and Jerald Goldsmith, 42, all addresses unavailable, were all charged with conspiracy to commit federal bank robbery. Glenn and Goldsmith allegedly conspired with Davis to rob the HSBC branch Tuesday. Cotton allegedly conspired with Davis to rob the Bank of America, according to Maureen P. Dempsey, an FBI spokeswoman.

Davis, Cotton and Goldsmith were all remanded into the custody of the U.S. marshal, pending a detention hearing today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio.

Glenn, whose criminal history includes some minor infractions from more than a decade ago, was released by the court pending a future appearance, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Rogowski.
