PENSACOLA, Fla. (WALA) - State Attorney Bill Eddins announced on May 30, 2013, Terry Dewayne Gideon was convicted of robbery without a weapon by an Escambia County jury.
The charges stem from the robbery of the Bank of America on Nine Mile Road that occurred on October 2, 2012.
Gideon took a yellow cab to multiple banks before robbing the Bank of America. Gideon approached the teller just before closing and handed her a note that demanded all of her 20's, 50's, and 100's. He left the bank with more than $1,000.
Bank employees were able to identify the cab number and relayed that information to law enforcement.
The Escambia County Sheriff's Office located Gideon a short time
later and arrested him. Multiple people were able to identify Gideon and his thumb print was identified on the demand note.
Gideon is scheduled to be sentenced on August 2, 2013 before Judge Scott Duncan.
Based on his prior criminal history, the State will be seeking sentencing as a Habitual Felony Offender and a Prison Releasee Reoffender. Under those designations, Gideon faces a minimum of 15 years and up to 30 years State Prison.
