TYLER, Texas – A gun-wielding robber who held up a couple of credit unions and at least one bank here in 2004 was sentenced to 20 years behind bars Monday. Anthony Ray Dailey was sentenced to 20 years on three separate bank robbery charges and will serve the prison terms concurrently. The 44-year-old robber was also ordered to pay $43,650 in restitution. Daley and two accomplices, wearing disguises and armed with pellet guns, robbed Keystone CU on June 4, 2004. A month later they hit Kelley Tyler FCU, then a few days later First State Bank of Brownsboro. The three robberies netted them about $60,000. Dailey’s accomplices, Carlos Dewayne Starks and his girlfriend Carol Robertson-Myles, pleaded guilty and testified against Dailey during his trial. The robbery went unsolved until Tyler police were called to Dailey’s house for a domestic dispute and his wife told them Daily was involved in the robbery.
