Pierce County prosecutors have charged a 45-year-old Tacoma man with holding up two banks in the last week.

Kevin Felkins has pleaded not guilty to two counts of first-degree robbery.

He was arrested Monday while pedaling his mountain bike away from a Key Bank branch at 2633 N. Pearl St.

Police said they recovered the stolen money and a discarded wig and clothing Felkins was allegedly wearing when he demanded money from a teller Monday.

The other robbery occurred Friday at a Key Bank branch at 1425 E. 72nd St.

Felkins was reportedly wearing the same wig and similar clothing in both holdups.

When confronted by Tacoma police after his arrest, Felkins said ‘I guess I’ve been had,” charging papers state.
