A man has been charged in federal court for the robbery of a downtown Billings bank in April.

Randy Ray Starnes, 60, appeared in U.S. District Court on July 5 and pleaded not guilty to felony bank robbery. 

According to court charging documents, Starnes is accused of robbing the Western Security Bank on April 7.

The robbery happened shortly after 9 a.m. when a man walked into the bank on First Avenue North and gave a teller a note stating he had a gun and demanding money.
