Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A Federal jury has found a 26–year–old Eveleth man guilty of armed bank robbery. On August 13, 2013 Neiman Regis Adams and another person entered Virginia Cooperative Credit Union wearing hooded sweatshirts.

Adams pointed a handgun at multiple tellers and a customer while the other robber took almost $57,000 from teller drawers. The robbery was caught on video surveillance which played a major role in the arrest.

Adam's faces the possibility of a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison. This is not his first bank robbery.

In 2009 he went to prison for the armed robbery of the Klein Bank in Coon Rapids. Six months after being released he robbed the Virginia Cooperative Credit Union.

The accomplice in the robbery has not yet been found or identified.
