HS man pled guilty to bank robbery

A Holts Summit man has pled guilty to a charge of first-degree robbery in connection with a bank robbery in Holts Summit last October.

Tyjuan Young, 47, is scheduled to be sentenced at the end of next month.

According to a Holts Summit Police Department probable cause statement, a Jefferson City police officer recognized Young from a bank surveillance photo, saying he had dealings with Young on the night before the robbery occurred.

Authorities went to an address on Edmonds Street in Jefferson City, where the officer had last seen Young, and picked him up there on the evening of Oct. 25, the day of the robbery.

Young is believed to have entered Mid America Bank on Karen Drive just before 10 a.m. on the 25th, giving a teller a note stating “give me the money.”

The teller said the robber displayed a small silver handgun.

No injuries occurred. Young fled before the teller could give him any money.
