82-year-old faces March 2 trial in Tucson bank robbery
PHOENIX (AP) – An 82-year-old man is scheduled to go on trial March 2 on a bank robbery charge stemming from a January 2018 holdup of a Tucson credit union.
Robert Krebs has pleaded not guilty to the federal charge in the robbery at a branch of Pyramid Federal Credit Union.
Krebs has spent decades behind bars for stealing from banks.
He served more than 30 years in prison for a 1981 robbery in Florida and was sentenced to three years in prison after a 1966 conviction in Chicago for embezzling $72,000 from a bank where he worked as a teller.
He served another 17 years in Arizona for theft and armed robbery convictions dating back to 1980.
He was released from prison in 2017, six months before the Tucson robbery.
