Topeka Man Pleads Guilty To Robbing Credit Union

TOPEKA, KAN. – A Topeka man pleaded guilty today to robbing a local credit union, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Robert Charles Frazier, 63, Topeka, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on Aug. 20, 2018, he robbed the Azura Credit Union at 1129 S. Kansas Avenue in Topeka. He told a teller, “This is a robbery. Give me your twenties, fifties and hundreds.” After receiving the money, he left the building and sat down on a nearby wall. An off-duty Topeka police officer working security arrested him.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 26. Both parties have agreed to recommend a sentence of five years in federal prison. McAllister commended the Topeka Police Department and the FBI for their work on the case.
