Ransom-claiming bank robbery defendant pleads not guilty
February 12, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Douglas Taylor

A Redwood City bank robbery defendant who reportedly told the teller he needed money for his kidnapped daughter’s ransom before making off with $5,600 last month pleaded not guilty Tuesday.

Just before 10 a.m. Jan. 10, Douglas Mitchell Taylor, 55, of Boulder Creek, allegedly handed a note to the teller of the Wells Fargo Bank stating that “they” have his daughter and he will never see her again unless he pays them. The teller gave the man later identified as Taylor a bag with $5,600 cash and triggered the silent alarm. When the robber left the bank, Redwood City police were waiting for him outside.

Taylor gave his occupation as both teacher and electrician and said he could not find a job and was living in his RV.

He remains in custody on $50,000 bail.
