Killeen: Man Pleads Guilty To Local Bank Robbery

KILLEEN (August 20, 2014) A Killeen man on Tuesday pleaded guilty to robbing a Killeen bank in July 2013 and was set for sentencing.

Anthony Xavier Taylor, 31, pleaded guilty before 426th District Court Judge Fancy Jezek and the judge set him for sentencing on September 30.

Aggravated robbery is a first degree felony and is punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison.

An affidavit introduced in court says an armed man walked into the Broadway National Bank, at Fort Hood Street and Central Texas Expressway and demanded cash from three tellers.

The man, who was wearing gloves, a mask and sunglasses, fled the bank in a red Nissan pick up truck after stuffing an undetermined amount of money into a backpack.

A locator in the cash packet led police to the truck which was abandoned in a grocery store parking lot on Trimmier Road.

Taylor was arrested after a traffic stop when police found a glove matching one seen in surveillance video and a $20 bill that had a serial number matching one of those that was stolen from the bank.
