Jeffery M. McMullen, 50, of Northern Cambria, stood before a district judge Tuesday, accused of attempting to rob a bank for $1.
But rather than fight the charges before District Judge Michael Zungali in Hastings, McMullen waived his right to the preliminary hearing.
His case will be heard at a later date in Cambria County Court.
According to police reports, McMullen entered the AmeriServ bank branch in Carrolltown on Oct. 5 and gave a teller a note that said he was robbing the bank for the desired dollar bill.
After two employees thought it was a joke, a third one gave him the dollar and called police.
One of his notes read: “This is the United States of America Federal Bank Robbery, please hand over $1.00 ...”
Another note said: “FBI Custody (Preferbly Lorreto, PA)”
McMullen was lodged in the federal prison in Loretto, charged with three robbery offenses. Bond was set at $50,000 and a mental-health evaluation was requested.
He is being represented by Public Defender Maribeth Schaffer.
