EUGENE, OR -- The Madras man accused of robbing a bank amid the excitement and crowds of the 2017 eclipse has pleaded guilty to robbery and drug charges. Tyler Fuller appeared in a federal courtroom in Eugene on Thursday, to change his plea.

 
According to federal prosecutors, the 29-year-old walked in to the US Bank in downtown Madras just after the August 21, 2017 eclipse. He handed the teller a note that read “Give me your money and nobody gets hurt” and got away with $517. He was later arrested during a traffic stop. 


In a separate case, Fuller also admitted to being a member of a drug distribution conspiracy and to possessing more than 50 grams of meth. He faces up to life in prison, with a 10-year mandatory minimum, and will be sentenced in April.
