CHARLOTTE, Mich (WLNS) – Three Detroit men who robbed a credit union last June have pled guilty and now face long prison terms.
The three entered their pleas Tuesday.
18-year-old Chrishon Milton and 18-year-old Fred Lewis both pled guilty to two counts of bank robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit bank robbery.
A third man, 23-year-old Patrick Patterson, pled guilty to one count of bank robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit bank robbery.
They will serve at least 44 months in prison.
The three robbed the Case Credit Union on the 5600 block of West Saginaw Highway on June 16.
Prosecutors say the three handed a teller a note demanding “$40,000 or I’ll kill you”.
They fled the credit union with about $500.
A nearby store manager took a picture of the car that the trio escaped in and police soon began following them.
The pursuit on I-96 went into Ingham County and the car crashed trying to enter US-127.
A search involving at least six different departments found the three after several hours.
