Man To Plead Guilty In Greenville Bank Robbery

Posted: Updated:
Federal court records indicate a man will plead guilty next week in a Greenville bank robbery.
    
The indictment in the case said Warren Gene Williams III participated in the robbery of Planters Bank and Trust Company on Sept. 10. He was indicted Sept. 18 on two counts related to the robbery and another stemming from a bomb threat.
    
A change of plea hearing is scheduled for Thursday in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen.
    
Williams' lawyer was in court Friday and did not immediately respond to a phone message.
    
Police say a bomb threat was called in to a local school before the robbery to divert police from the heist.
    
Police say others were involved and stole $600,425, but a dye pack exploded and the money was recovered.
