WACO, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas man faces up to 80 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a pair of bank robberies and shooting a police officer.

Prosecutors say Dallas Scott Bohanan pleaded guilty Tuesday in Waco to bank robberies in 2016 and this year. The 25-year-old Waco man also pleaded guilty to three counts of discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.

Investigators say Bohanan robbed Temple Santa Fe Community Credit Union in November 2016. He robbed Pointwest Bank in Hewitt on Feb. 5 and opened fire with a shotgun, exchanging gunfire with police and wounding an officer in the arm. Bohahan was nabbed in Waco.


Prosecutors say Bohanan discharged guns during both holdups, plus during a 2016 bank robbery in Waco.

He’s jailed pending sentencing.
