Anchorage man pleads guilty to bank robbery

Posted: Friday, March 28, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) An Anchorage man pleaded guilty Thursday to robbing a branch of the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union.

William Clary on Dec. 26, 2002, walked into the credit union and handed a teller a note demanding money. He threatened to shoot if the teller told anyone, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The teller handed Clary $3,045 and an electronic transmitting device. Police tracked the electronic transmitting device to a fence near the parking lot of the Russian Jack Apartments.

While driving through the parking lot, a police officer spotted a vehicle matching Clary's and discovered his apartment was nearby.

Police searched the apartment and found $1,670. Inside Clary's car, police found another robbery note.

Clary faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
