— Tyjuan Zedric Young, 47, Holts Summit, is back in Callaway County Jail after he was arrested Monday on a charge of attempting to rob the Mid America Bank here. Young was arrested at 5 p.m. Monday at a residence on Edmonds Street in Jefferson City.

Young is in Callaway County Jail on a charge of first degree armed robbery. His bond is set at $100,000.

After the robbery Monday morning, a photograph from a security camera at the bank was circulated. Deputies in the Callaway County Jail recognized Young from the photo because he had been held there recently. Callaway County deputies informed other law enforcement officers of the likely identity of the robber. A Jefferson City police officer also recognized Young from the photo. After checking with people who knew Young, law enforcement officers found Young in Jefferson City a few hours after the attempted robbery.

Holts Summit Police Chief Kyle McIntyre said the suspect entered the bank shortly before 10 a.m. Monday, showed a note to a teller and displayed a handgun. But before the teller could give him any money, the suspect ran away.

Witnesses said a second man waiting in a burgundy sedan drove the pair away from the bank.

McIntyre said so far Young is not talking about his accomplice.

Young pleaded guilty to a third degree domestic assault charge on Aug. 9 in Callaway County Circuit Court.

On Aug. 27, Young pleaded guilty in Callaway County Circuit Court to a property damage charge and was sentenced to 180 days in Callaway County Jail. There was a suspended execution of his sentence, pending good behavior. Young was given credit for jail time served since June 23 and placed on two years of unsupervised probation.

On Oct. 7, Callaway County Asst. Prosecuting Atty. Christopher Wilson filed a motion for probation revocation and Young failed to appear in court on Oct. 15. A warrant for his arrest was issued on Oct. 18 but Young was not located until he arrested for first degree bank robbery on Monday.
