Amarillo, TX - Today an Amarillo man appeared in court and admitted to robbing Amarillo National Bank in March.
He pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery.
William Eugene Boyd appeared before U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson, now facing a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine for the offense. His sentencing date has not been set.
According to the case documents, on March 13, a robber, later identified as Boyd, approached a teller at the ANB on Coulter and told her, "This is a robbery."
He instructed her to give him all the money, nothing marked, and for her not make a sound.
She followed instructions, fearing he had a weapon, and Boyd left the bank with a case.
After the police provided surveillance footage to the media, Boyd's family identified him as the robber. Bank employees also identified him in the photo line-up.
The FBI and the Amarillo Police Department lead the investigation.
