A 41-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to robbing a Tacoma bank last week.
Pierce County prosecutors said Kenneth Michael Foley held up the Heritage Bank branch at 5400 South Tacoma Way on Thursday.
Police noticed a car speeding away from the area with no license plates and pulled the vehicle over. As Foley stepped out of the car with his hands in the area, he allegedly apologized. He was taken into custody after the stolen money and note used in the robbery were found inside the car.
Foley is accused of walking into the bank and claiming he needed to cash a check. He then put a large satchel on the counter, handed the clerk a note that said he had a gun and wanted money and then fled the bank with the stolen cash.
