Man to plead guilty to West Fargo bank robbery

The man accused of robbing a West Fargo bank at gunpoint in August plans to plead guilty, according to court documents filed Wednesday in Fargo’s U.S. District Court.

Matthew C. Becker, 19, is charged with bank robbery for allegedly holding up the Town & Country Credit Union branch at gunpoint and fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money.

Becker was arrested the day after the incident, and some, but not all, of the money taken was recovered by local police.

Becker pleaded guilty to the charges in February, but his attorney is now requesting a hearing to change his plea to guilty. That hearing had not been scheduled as of Thursday afternoon.
