FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man accused of robbing a local bank at gunpoint shortly before Christmas has been arraigned in federal court.

The Forum reports that 54-year-old Timothy Patrick McKenna is set for a detention hearing Friday.

Court documents state that McKenna entered a Gate City Bank on Dec. 17, indicated he had a gun and demanded cash. He reportedly made off with nearly $9,000.

McKenna was originally charged in Cass County District Court with robbery, a felony.

But that case has been closed following McKenna's initial appearance and arraignment in U.S. District Court in Fargo on bank robbery charges this week.
