Convicted Bank Robber Sentenced for Second Bank Robbery

 

An Alabama man has been sentenced for his second bank robbery. Anthony Mayes this morning was sentenced in 78th District Court to 7 years and 6 months, plus a $10,000 fine for the June, 2015  robbery of the Wells Fargo branch in the United Grocery on Jacksboro Highway. 
 
Police believe in June of 2015, Mayes walked into the United on Jacksboro Highway and approached the Wells Fargo, gave the teller a note and demanded money then ran away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
 
A week before that,  on May 27th, Plano police say Mayes held up a bank there. According to authorities he demanded money and jumped over the counter, attempting to open drawers.
He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. Plano police were able to link him to the scene through fingerprints.
 
Mayes was arrested in Thackerville, Oklahoma at the Winstar Casino on Thursday, June 4th. Mayes was taken to the Love County jail in Marietta, Oklahoma where over the course of a weekend there, jail officials say he tried to escape, but was caught soon after.
 
Love County officials say they are planning to charge him for that as well. On Monday, he was transferred to the Collin County jail in McKinney on the robbery charges out of Plano and for yet another warrant out of Mobile, Alabama for theft.
 
Mays remains in the Collin County jail on a $100-thousand dollar bond.
