COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A former Columbus police officer has plead not guilty after police say he robbed a Columbus bank.

Edward Pascucci appeared in Recorder's Court Thursday morning where he waived his right to a preliminary hearing and entered a not guilty plea.

Pascucci was given a $25,000 bond for the firearm charges, but no bond was granted for the robbery charge. He will remain in the Muscogee County Jail and his case will be bound to Superior Court.

FBI Agents say that 53 year old Edward Pascucci, a former law enforcement officer, was taken into custody after entering the Citizens Trust Bank on Macon Road shortly after 11 o'clock Wednesday morning.

They say Pascucci approached a teller with a .357 Magnum revolver and asked for an undisclosed amount of money.

He was detained by a security guard inside the bank and held until police arrived.

Pascucci could possibly face federal bank robbery charges.
