Six Oklahoma City men are charged with conspiracy to commit six armed bank robberies in a superseding indictment unsealed Thursday. The robberies occurred from Jan. 18 through April 12.

The original indictment charged Michael Deon Lewis, 27, and Jerry Carlton Lewis, 19, with the April 12 robbery of MidFirst Bank, 7500 S Western Ave.

U.S. Attorney Sanford C. Coats announced the six men now charged in nine separate counts are Michael Lewis, Jerry Lewis, Clarence David Hudson, 41, Charles Glen Johnson, 19, Leon Wayne Murrell, 19, and Nicholas Deshon Tubbs, 21.

Counts 1 through 3 of the superseding indictment allege Hudson, Jerry Lewis, Johnson and Murrell conspired to rob the Bank of Oklahoma, 4324 SE 44. It states that Hudson organized the robbery and recruited Jerry Lewis and Johnson to rob the bank, while Murrell obtained the stolen firearms to use in the robbery. The bank was robbed Jan. 18 and again Jan. 24.

Count 4 alleges Murrell is in illegal possession of stolen firearms, including two .357-magnum caliber revolvers, a 12-gauge shotgun and another revolver.
