Two 23-year-old friends have pleaded not guilty to twice robbing the same Dunkin Donuts storefront in Westwood - once in March and once in July, according to Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey.
Kevin W. Hanafin, age 23 of Wiggins Ave in Dedham and Frank Ingemi, 23, of Wyvern St. in Roslindale, each pled not guilty to two counts of armed robbery for the March 12 and July 7, 2013 holdups. Charges were taken by the Westwood Police Department.
"We requested $50,000 bail on each defendant," District Attorney Morrissey said after the arraignment. "Hanafin was ordered held on $15,000 and Ingemi on $30,000. Both are due back January 3, 2013 for pre-trial conference."
Each man was arrested at his respective residence by detectives executing search warrants obtained as part of an ongoing investigation into a series of armed robberies of Dunkin Donuts locations in and around Boston in recent months.
"These men are charged only with these two robberies and no others at this time," District Attorney Morrissey said. "We understand that the investigation remains active and ongoing."
As with all criminal defendants, Hanafin and Ingemi enjoy the Constitutional presumption of innocence unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
