Casper, WY (AP) - A man accused of attempting to rob a Wells Fargo bank in Casper last week will remain in detention awaiting trial.
Federal Magistrate Judge Michael Shickich ruled Tuesday that Jack Taber has a long history of criminal complaints and a lack of ties to the community.
According to the Casper Star-Tribune, Taber faces a federal charge of attempted bank robbery after a man walked into the bank and demanded a teller put money in a bag and give it to him.
Police say when they looked at bank surveillance video, they identified the suspect as Taber from a previous arrest.
Taber's attorney declined to comment.
