Georgia man tries to rob the same bank he robbed 10 years ago
William Jeffrey Lowder Jr.a man from central Georgia who recently pleaded guilty to trying to hold out same bank he went to jail for robbery in 2013.
Suspect was released on bail after a bank teller made a surprise news
News 41NBC reported the incident earlier this year at Truist Bank in Bibb County, Ga.
On January 27, Lowder is said to have entered the Macon bank and handed the teller a note that read, “Out-of-register money, no dye packs, Sorry!”
The trader tells Lowder they don’t have a register. In return, the 41-year-old man decided to leave the facility abruptly. We should note that it is unclear whether Lowder was armed during the robbery.
In addition to bailing out the robbery schemes, Lowder appeared to have some regrets, as — about an hour later — he called his probation officer and confessed to everything.

An FBI agent said that Lowder’s last sentence was clearly “not teaching enough.”
Soon after, authorities arrested Lowder, who had just been released from prison for his 2013 robbery.
Based on WSB-TV, FBI Special Agent Keri Farley stated that his previous prison sentence “didn’t seem instructive enough.” Ouch!
She also emphasized, “He went back to his bank robbery while he was still on supervised release for the last bank robbery he committed.”
Now that he has pleaded guilty, Lowder faces a sentence of 20 years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervision. He could also be fined $250,000.
It was noted that Lowder’s sentencing date would come later. However, the specifics surrounding this are currently unclear.
There are no further updates on the situation at this time.
