Mike Barajas — Three local men who robbed a Baytown bank and terrorized its employees are going to have to spend at least 10-years behind bars. The bank robbing trio carried out their bold plan by storming the Community bank in Baytown back in 2010, wearing dark clothing.
Investigators says one of the men brandished a gun in his hand and ordered everyone inside to get on the ground. A second accomplice handcuffed some bank employees with “zip ties” or “flex cuffs.” Then the three hijackers identified as Jose Matilde Quintanilla, Paul Glenn Ballard and Carl Edward Malone stole money from the teller drawers and placed some of the cash inside a lunch box type container as well as a clear plastic bag.
But they didn’t get to spend the loot, because they were arrested soon after they terrorized the Community bank employees.
Tuesday a judge sentenced all three men to at least 10-years behind bars and they are now awaiting transfer to a federal prison.
