PHOENIX — An 82-year-old man is scheduled to go on trial March 2 on a bank robbery charge stemming from a January 2018 holdup of a Tucson credit union.

Robert Krebs has pleaded not guilty to the federal charge in the robbery at a branch of Pyramid Federal Credit Union.

Krebs has spent decades behind bars for stealing from banks.

He served more than 30 years in prison for a 1981 robbery in Florida and was sentenced to three years in prison after a 1966 conviction in Chicago for embezzling $72,000 from a bank where he worked as a teller.
