PHOENIX (AP) — An elderly man accused of holding up a credit union in Tucson two weeks ago now faces a federal bank robbery charge.
A judge on Tuesday ordered Robert Francis Krebs to be jailed until trial after finding he was at risk of skipping out on court dates.
Last summer, he completed a prison sentence for a 1981 bank robbery near Orlando, Florida.
He violated his probation from Florida by failing to inform authorities of his whereabouts.
