LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -
Convicted bank robber Carlton Ray Taylor, 55, of Lubbock, Texas, was sentenced Friday morning by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 41 months in federal prison for robbing the Lubbock National Bank, at 1001 Main Street, on New Year's Eve 2010.  The announcement was made today by U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the Northern District of Texas.   Taylor has been in custody since his arrest on January 3, 2011.
 
According to documents filed in the case, at mid-day on December 31, 2010, Taylor walked into the bank, stayed for a while near a counter in the lobby and then left the bank.  One of the tellers recognized Taylor as one of the bank's regular customers.  A short time later, Taylor returned, walked directly to the teller's window, and gave the teller a demand note.  Taylor put his hands in his pocket which led the teller to believe that he may have had a weapon.  Taylor took the money and left the bank.
 
After pushing the alarm button and notifying other employees that he had been robbed, the teller looked up previous checks cashed by the man, whom he had recognized, and learned his name.  When Taylor was arrested, law enforcement searched his vehicle and found the clothes he wore during the robbery as well as a small portion of the money he had obtained in the robbery.
 
The case was investigated by the FBI and the Lubbock Police Department.  Deputy Criminal Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Denise Williams was in charge of the prosecution.
