The Federal Bureau of Investigation released video footage of the robbery
that took place at a Bank of America last week in Plano, Texas. According
to the footage, the men entered the bank brandished weapons, and then
demanded money from the tellers at the front desk. After completing their
crime, the suspects dashed back into a vehicle and drove away. The car
was later discovered near the scene of the crime. It had been abandoned,
and was allegedly stolen.
The authorities say that these three bank robbers took an undetermined
amount of money from the scene. The FBI says that no one was seriously
hurt in the robbery, but due to the fact that the robbers brandished weapons,
the penalties for the crime will be harsher. The suspects wore long shirts,
pants, gloves, hoodies, and masks. Some suspect that they are connected
with other local robberies which have taking place in the Plano area as of late.
The Plano Police Department is asking for all parties with information
to call the FBI office and report in on the missing suspects. If you have
been arrested for a bank robbery, you need a skilled attorney to assist
you with your case right away. In Texas, bank robberies that involve the
use of weapons, regardless of whether or not they are discharged, are
considered aggravated robberies.
Those arrested for an aggravated robbery can expect to spend extensive
time in prison for their offense if convicted. According to the Texas
statutes, a person needs to merely exhibit a weapon in order to be charged
with aggravated robbery. In general, robbery is considered to be a second
degree felony in Texas. This means between two and twenty years in state
prison, and a fine of up to $10,000. If the
robbery is considered an aggravated robbery, then the suspect may face a first
degree felony with a potential prison sentence between 5 and 99 years.
