Terry Lee Bowman will face federal charges for bank robbery, according to Linn County Prosecutor Julia Baker.
According to police records, Bowman on Sept. 1 demanded cash inside the Oregon State Credit Union, 1394 Clay St. SE, and left with a little more than $2,000. Six employees and 12 customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery.
He was arrested Sept. 2 for theft and bank robbery, but was only charged with theft, said Linn County prosecutor Julia Baker, due to time constraints in filing charges.
Baker on Sept. 8 filed a motion to dismiss the theft charges after federal agents placed a hold on Bowman's inmate status, announcing he will be charged with bank robbery.
Bowman will face the federal charges in U.S. District Court in Eugene. Prosecutors have not yet announced when Bowman will be arraigned.
Bowman has already served most of a 25-year prison sentence, after he was convicted of a 1997 bank robbery in Anchorage, Alaska.
