Closing arguments are expected today in the case involving three men identified by prosecutors as Rollin 40s Crips gang members accused of robbing a Bank of America in Canyon Country a little more than a year ago.

Following more than a week of testimony heard each day last week, Phillip Ely, 29, Lavelle Mosley, 22, and Terion Lamarr Collins, 25, are scheduled to appear in San Fernando Superior Court again today.

They face four counts each of second-degree robbery and one count each of kidnapping to commit another crime. The complaint alleges street-gang membership and gun use against each defendant.

“It should all be wrapped up this morning,” Deputy District Attorney Moira Curry of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said this morning, referring to final arguments presented by both sides.

“Then it goes to the jury,” she said.

The three are accused of having robbed a Bank of America in Canyon Country on Sept. 12, 2012, and having threatened customers and tellers. They then allegedly fled down freeways to Los Angeles, where they were captured after a lengthy chase.
