According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Fischer robbed 14 banks located throughout northeastern Pennsylvania between December 1, 2015 and September 13, 2017.

The matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police, and by numerous local law enforcement authorities throughout northeastern Pennsylvania.  Assistant United States Attorney Phillip J. Caraballo prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
