A 26-year-old Eveleth man has been convicted of an armed bank robbery he committed just six months after being released from jail where he was serving time for a different bank robbery.

Authorities say Neiman Regis Adams and another person entered the Virginia Cooperative Credit Union on August 13, 2013 and left with $53,597 from the teller drawers.

Police say Adams pointed a handgun at the tellers and a customer, and ordered everyone to get down on the ground while the other person emptied the money into duffel bag. 

The robbery was caught on surveillance cameras, and Adams was arrested by the Virginia Police department three days later. 

Back in 2009, Adams was convicted and served 51 months in prison for a bank robbery in Coon Rapids. His robbery of the Virginia bank happened six months after being released from prison for the 2009 robbery. 

Adams faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.
