Foley, Alabama (The Weekly Vice) - Matthew Dale Hudleston, a 33-year-old Pensacola, Florida man who was jailed on bank robbery charges back in October has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors that shed some light as to how he was arrested.
According to police, Hudleston robbed the Foley bank on Oct. 22nd by handing the teller a note that stated "I have a gun, do not alert anyone. No alarms, no dye packs, give me all the money in your drawer. You have 15 seconds, do not panic or alert anyone.
Investigators say Hudleston left the bank with $9,945, but later returned to retrieve the note he handed to the teller.
Hudleston attempted to flee in a black Explorer, which was soon chased by a Baldwin County sheriff's deputy and Summerdale Police. Hudleston was arrested after wrecking the Explorer.
The money and the hold-up note were both recovered from the wrecked Exploder (Explorer).
Hudleston was transferred to Santa Rosa County in Florida where he is wanted on probation violation charges, however he will be extradited to Mobile, Alabama for sentencing in the robbery case.
Prosecutors agreed to recommend a minimum sentence so long as it runs consecutively with whatever sentence he ends up with in the Florida case.
