A $25,000 cash only bond was set Friday for a man who allegedly broke into a bank Tuesday morning.

Following a court hearing, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Anthony Walker, 26, with commercial burglary and criminal mischief.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Walker was identified from video tape as the person who broke a window at Pine Bluff National Bank at 912 Poplar St., at about 4:30 a.m., and entered the building.

Detective Larry Gailey reported that police responded to an alarm at the bank, found the broken window, and entered the building but were not able to locate anyone inside.

Kizer said security video from the bank showed a man, later identified as Walker, who was carrying a backpack, try a door to the bank, then walk away. The man returned a few minutes later without the backpack, and was seen breaking the window, and when police searched the area, they located a backpack with Walker’s identification on the parking lot of a nearby business.

Gailey reported that when Walker was arrested, he waived his right to an attorney and told police he had broken into the bank “to get money to pay fines and get his car out of impound.”

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent Walker and told him to come back to court May 18.
