Scott Evans Maxwell

A man arrested in a Feb. 17 robbery at U.S. Bank in Fargo has been charged in federal court.

Scott Evans Maxwell made his first appearance on Friday. He pleaded not guilty to a charge of bank robbery by force or violence. Trial has been scheduled for May 17.

Police say the 36-year-old Maxwell was arrested within a couple of blocks of the bank minutes after the holdup. The money taken in the robbery was allegedly found on the suspect.

Cass County court records filed before the federal charges claim Maxwell handed the cloth bag to a teller at the bank and said, "Nothing funny. Put everything you have in it now. No alarms. No cops." He was arrested three minutes later in an alley near the bank branch at 505 2nd Ave. N.
