A Beatrice man accused of robbing a Beatrice bank in October has been bound to District Court.

Terry L. Bailes, 54, will appear in Gage County District Court on Jan. 3 for a single charge of robbery.

He was arrested Monday on suspicion of robbing Great Western Bank at 10th and Court streets.

Bailes was apprehended about a block away from the bank within five minutes.

Bailes put his hands up when approached by authorities and told police he was the one they were looking for, according to Gage County Court documents. After being cuffed, he allegedly told police it was better than being homeless and asked if the offense was a felony.

Police said Bailes left the bank with a small amount of money, and multiple people matching the description provided by bank workers were approached before it was determined Bailes was the suspect.

Court documents indicated Bailes left the bank with $10, and purchased cigarettes before being arrested.

Bank workers said Bailes had his hand in a pocket, but never displayed a weapon. Police do not believe he had a weapon at the time of the robbery.
