Louisiana man sentenced for Orange, Texas bank robbery


BEAUMONT, Texas – A 50-year-old Cameron, LA, man has been sentenced to federal prison for bank robbery in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales.

Allen Keith Miller pleaded guilty on Aug. 28, 2013 to bank robbery and was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison on Jan. 24, 2014 by U.S. District Judge Marcia Crone.

According to information presented in court, on June 25, 2013, Miller entered the Capital One Bank branch office located on 16th Street in Orange, Texas, wearing a blonde wig, baseball cap, long-sleeve shirt, tan pants and a black knee brace. Miller approached a bank teller and presented a hand-written note advising that the bank was being robbed. Miller also advised that he was armed although a weapon was not displayed. Media outlets broadcast footage of the bank robbery and Miller was identified by citizens. Miller was stopped by law enforcement officers in Louisiana, at which time items from the robbery, including the wig, baseball cap, clothing, and knee brace, were located in Miller's vehicle. Miller was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 11, 2013 and charged with bank robbery.

Miller has also been ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $963.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Orange Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John Craft.
