Minneapolis, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- A 25 year old Isabella man has pleaded guilty to robbing the Two Harbors Lake Bank Super One Branch back on Christmas Eve.

Robert Kenneth Moore pleaded guilty to one count of robbery today before the United States District Court in Minneapolis.

In his guilty plea, Moore admitted that he stole $6,669 from the Lake Bank in Two Harbors. Moore could face up to 20 years in prison.

Back on December 24th, 2011, Moore gave one of the tellers of the bank a note stating that he had a gun and ordered the teller to put money into a bag. Moore fled from the scene after taking the bag of money with him.

Two Harbors Police Department received a tip the next day that the suspect was hiding in the bathroom of an apartment in Proctor. Authorities also found the cash Moore had stolen in the apartment.

Moore was charged back in December for second–degree aggravated robbery, robbery, and theft. Moore was then indicted in federal court on January 24th.

Moore's sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
