Dallas Man Sentenced to 64 Months in Federal Prison for Robbing a Credit Union

DALLAS—Anthony Galloway, 38, of Dallas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to 64 months in federal prison after pleading guilty in February 2014 to one count of bank robbery, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

According to the complaint filed in the case, at approximately 4:00 p.m. on November 15, 2013, a man, later identified as Galloway, entered the Go Federal Credit Union located at 4040 North Central Expressway in Dallas and presented a note to a teller that stated, “I have a gun, give me the money or I’ll shoot you!” Realizing it was a robbery and seeing the robber act as though he were reaching for a gun, the teller, in fear of her life, gave the robber cash from her drawer. Galloway was arrested a short time later at an apartment on Holmes Street in Dallas.

The FBI, the Dallas Police Department and the Mesquite Police Department investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson prosecuted.

The plea agreement calls for Judge Philips to impose a sentence of at least 10 years and up to 23 years, which will be followed by 10 years of supervised release.

This case is the result of an investigation by the FBI. The following agencies provided assistance during the investigation: the Riverside Police Department; the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department; the San Bernardino Police Department; the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department; and the San Bernardino County Probation Department.
