A Washington State man who is accused of robbing the U.S. Bank in Quilcene in November is still in custody after a judge denied a motion for a bail reduction on Friday. The judge ruled that Ulysses Corwin Nevermissashot, 26, was a flight risk. Nevermissashot pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree robbery during his arraignment.
Nevermissashot’s attorney, Richard Davies, had requested that his client’s bail be reduced from $50,000 bond to $20,000.
Deputy Prosecutor Chris Ashcraft was able to convince the judge that Nevermissashot was a flight risk.
Superior Court Judge Keith Harper agreed. “These allegations are serious, and we have a lot to lose if he leaves the area,” he said.
During the theft, Nevermissashot allegedly robbed a bank teller at gunpoint and fled on foot with an undisclosed sum of money. Despite his name, no shots were fired, and no one was injured, the Peninsula Daily News reported.
A hand-rolled cigarette which was discovered at the scene carried Nevermissashot’s DNA. The investigation into the robbery is ongoing and police are still trying to determine the identities of Nevermissashot’s accomplices.
