A Wichita man has been charged in U.S. District Court with the last week’s robbery of the Commerce Bank at 456 N. Main in Wichita.

A criminal complaint alleges that Billy L. Wilson, 52, entered the bank about 10:20 a.m. Friday and handed a teller a note that said he had a gun. After bank surveillance photos were made public, federal prosecutors said, police received a tip from someone who knew the suspect.

Police said they called the suspect on his cellphone, but he refused to talk to them. Police said he turned himself in at the Sedgwick County Jail later in the day.

Wilson faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
