February 28, 2007|By Matthew Dolan

A grand jury indicted three Baltimore men yesterday on federal charges of robbing six delivery trucks of cartons of cigarettes in the city.

According to the indictment, the defendants - Keith Debnam, 41, Michael Goodwyn, 39, and Clyde Ringgold, 42 - robbed delivery truck drivers in July and August of 667 cigarette cartons worth about $24,500, and a case of apple Danish pastries.

The defendants, who are in state custody, were arrested last summer on state charges, federal prosecutors said yesterday. They could receive a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison if convicted, authorities said.
