Man from Springfield Accused of Bank Robbery Pleads Guilty

A man from Springfield is pleading guilty to robbing a bank in the city on July 20 of this year.

30-year-old Michael Loyd admitted to robbing the Bank of America on Kearney Street near Farm Road 141.

He told authorities that he used a highlighter to write a note that said, “Give your money now. Don’t say anything. I have a partner outside.”

He stole just under $800 from the bank, and was arrested less than 30 minutes after the robbery.

Loyd pleaded guilty to one count of felony bank robbery Thursday and now awaits sentencing in the case.

He faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
