Local Man Convicted of Bank Robbery

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - A Corpus Christi resident has entered a guilty plea to bank robbery, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez.


On Dec. 20, 2016, law enforcement officers responded to a bank robbery at the navy Army Community Credit Union in the 9500 block of South Padre Island Drive in Corpus Christi. After entering the bank, a male - later identified as Johnathan Samuel Borden, 32 - handed the teller a black bag and demanded money.


During the investigation, agents were able to link Borden to an additional robbery that occurred on Jan. 6, 2017, at the Texas Bridge Credit Union in the 3100 block of Holly in Corpus Christi.


Senior U.S. District Judge John Rainey accepted the plea today and has set sentencing for Feb. 20, 2018. At that time, Borden faces up to 20 years imprisonment and a possible $250,000 maximum fine.


In federal custody since his arrest, Borden will remain in custody pending that hearing. 


The FBI and the Corpus Christi Police Department conducted the investigation.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Lance Watt is prosecuting the case.
