Bank robber who claimed ransom need takes plea deal
March 19, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

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 no contest to felony bank robbery.

In return, Douglas Mitchell Taylor, 55, faces up to two years in prison although a judge can consider allowing him into Veterans Treatment Court. The veterans program is a hybrid drug and mental health court model that offers treatment and support for mental illness, addiction and/or other disorders.

Taylor will be sentenced April 15 and remains in custody on $50,000 bail.

The Boulder Creek man was arrested Jan. 10 after he entered a Wells Fargo Bank just before 10 a.m. and handed a note to the teller 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.
