Bail was maintained at $30,000 cash for an Alabama man arrested following Friday’s robbery of the valley branch of Northrim Bank.

Larry Randolph Powell, 52, of Bay Minette, Ala., was charged with robbery, theft and terroristic threatening after his arrest on Saturday.

Powell appeared in Juneau District Court on Tuesday after his initial appearance before Magistrate Amanda Schulz on Sunday. He appeared to have recently shaved.

Police initially described the suspect as having gray scruffy facial hair when he threatened a teller with an explosive device and then left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Powell is scheduled to appear before Juneau District Court Judge Thomas Nave on April 29 unless a grand jury returns with an indictment. Then, his case will be moved to Juneau Superior Court.
