According to the indictment, Brown used a firearm during the robbery of Exchange Bank in Gadsden in March 2023.

Authorities said Brown is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of a prior felony conviction.

He was convicted on August 24, 1999, in the Circuit Court of Etowah County, Alabama for first-degree robbery.
