Lubbock Man Gets 12 Years for Austin Holdup

To his family, 41-year-old Timothy Dale Gould was a hardworking father of three, but federal prosecutors say that from 2000 to 2002, he committed three armed bank robberies in his hometown of Lubbock, another in Amarillo, and a final one in Austin.

In Austin, Gould was pursued by police and eventually arrested. Gould was sentenced Friday for the Austin robbery. US District Judge Sam Sparks sentenced Gould to 11 years and 9 months in prison, the maximum under federal sentencing guidelines. Gould had pleaded guilty to using a .45-caliber pistol to rob a Bank of America branch in Austin in September.

He still faces a 9-count federal indictment in the Northern District of Texas in the Lubbock and Amarillo robberies. That indictment includes four charges of using a gun during a crime of violence. Authorities say that after his arrest in Austin, Gould confessed to the Bank of America robbery as well as others.

Gould has not entered pleas in the Lubbock or Amarillo cases.  Prosecutors say that the bank heists netted Gould more than $750,000.
