76-year-old bank robbery suspect has long criminal history @ 5:33 pm
On Nov 17, 2016
FBI agents investigating an armed robbery at a Reno bank figured they had their man when they found the 76-year-old suspect eating lunch at a nearby casino.
The agents say they asked Tommy Ray McAdoo what he does for a living.
A criminal complaint says he answered, "I used to rob banks."
McAdoo has been in and out of prison since the mid-1960s. According to court records, he said he recently moved into the local homeless shelter because he couldn't afford to pay his monthly rent.
Prosecutors say he made off with $2,731 in a paper grocery sack last week from a bank across the street from the federal courthouse where he's scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing on Thursday.
He's charged with bank robbery with the use of a dangerous weapon — a large steak knife.
