An 81-year-old man who spent decades behind bars for a series of bank robberies said he stole from an Arizona credit union months after being released from prison because his monthly $800 Social Security payments were too small to live on, according to court records.
Robert Francis Krebs walked into the Pyramid Federal Credit Union in Tucson in January 2018 without a disguise and allegedly put a BB gun — that looked like a handgun — on the counter and demanded cash. He told FBI agents he “kind of wanted to get caught” so he could return to prison, court documents said.
Lawyers for Krebs, who turns 82 in July, say their client has reported having symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. A neuropsychologist concluded Krebs was not competent to stand trial because he has dementia. Two other experts have accused him of embellishing his condition to avoid prosecution.
