Local Man Sent to Prison for Robbing Two Banks

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - A Corpus Christi resident has been ordered to federal prison for his conviction of bank robbery, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Johnathan Samuel Borden, 32, pleaded guilty Nov. 20, 2017.

Today, Senior U.S. District Judge John Rainey handed Borden a 48-month-sentence to be immediately followed by three years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay restitution to the banks.

On Jan. 6, 2017, law enforcement officers responded to a bank robbery at the Texas Bridge Credit Union in the 3100 block of Holly in Corpus Christi. After entering the bank, a male, later identified as Borden, handed the teller a bag and demanded money. Borden then left the bank with a significant amount of U.S. currency. During the investigation, agents were able to link Borden to an additional robbery that occurred Dec. 20, 2016, at the Navy Army Community Credit Union in the 9500 block of South Padre Island Drive in Corpus Christi. In that case, Borden again handed the teller a black bag, demanded money and left with it.  

In federal custody since his arrest, Borden will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

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