WACO (KRLD) - Prosecutors say Dallas Bohanan pleaded guilty to robbing the Temple Santa Fe Community Credit Union in November 2016. They say he stole around $4,550 in cash. He also pleaded guilty to robbing Pointwest Bank in Hewitt on February 5th. He's accused of stealing around $3,500 in cash.

Prosecutors say Bohanan also admitted to discharging firearms during those two bank robberies as well as during a third bank robbery on November 15, 2016, at the Chase Bank on North New Road in Waco.

Investigators say he fired at least two rounds in the direction of an officer and took off in a car. As police were pursuing him in a high-speed chase, officials say Bohanan fired two shotgun rounds at officers, and one of those rounds struck an officer in the arm. 

Bohanan eventually crashed his car and attempted to flee but was caught by Waco police. 

Prosecutors say he could face up to 80 years in federal prison. He remains in federal custody pending sentencing scheduled for September.
