Adams was arraigned in U.S. District Court on Dec. 12 in Minneapolis, entering a not guilty plea. He is scheduled to appear for a hearing Jan. 10 in Duluth, and a jury trial is scheduled for March 3.

According to the indictment, which was returned by a St. Paul grand jury on Dec. 2, Adams took approximately $53,597 from the Virginia Cooperative Credit Union on Aug. 13.

Virginia police reported that two males held up the credit union at gunpoint but no other arrests have been announced.

Adams was charged Sept. 3 in State District Court with first-degree aggravated robbery, ineligible person in possession of a firearm and four counts of second-degree assault. He pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial Jan. 14.

In 2009, Adams pleaded guilty to a federal charge of armed robbery of a bank in Coon Rapids.
