Gang-tackled bank robber pleads guilty in Fort Worth

A bank robber who tried to carjack a woman after he had robbed a bank in June in north Fort Worth has pleaded guilty.

Larry Don Enos, 57, who was tackled by four witnesses as he tried to steal a woman's car at gunpoint, made his guilty plea Friday in a federal court in Fort Worth, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Richard B. Roper.

The bank robbery occurred on June 13 at the Wells Fargo Bank, 2850 Heritage Trace Parkway.

Police said he entered the bank at 11:30 a.m. wearing a wig, fake beard and mustache. He pointed a handgun and demanded money. Then he ordered a bank employee to be his getaway driver, police said.

The teller told Enos that he couldn't leave, so the robber took his car keys instead.

Outside, police said, Enos apparently couldn't find the teller's car, so he tried to carjack a woman who was in her car with her kids at the ATM.

That's when he got gang tackled by the four bystanders.

Enos has already served prison time for drugs, burglary and robbery, according to reports.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 5, and he faces a possible life sentence and a $1 million fine, Roper said.
