Topeka man sentenced in credit union robbery Tuesday

A Topeka man was sentenced on Tuesday to five years in federal prison for robbing a local credit union, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Sixty-three-year-old Robert Charles Frazier pleaded guilty to one count of robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on Aug. 20, 2018, he robbed the Azura Credit Union at 1129 S. Kansas Avenue in Topeka. He told a teller, “This is a robbery. Give me your twenties, fifties and hundreds.” After receiving the money, he left the building and sat down on a nearby wall.

An off-duty Topeka police officer working security arrested him.
