Three men have been charged in a series of nine bank robberies earlier this year in the Madison area. Thirty-one-year-old Robert Minette, 30-year-old Jonathan Thompson, and 18-year-old Kiefah Marbara were in Dane County Court for an appearance Wednesday. The banks in Madison, Fitchburg, Sun Prairie and Middleton were robbed between January 8th and February 22nd. Investigators say Thompson admitted to being the driver spotted on video surveillance at one of the banks. He was also wearing a court-ordered G-P-S monitoring device at the time. Marbra told police he was a reluctant participant and the robberies were Thompson’s idea.
