Man accused of robbing Scottsbluff Git N Split has case bound over to district court

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of robbing a Scottsbluff convenience store was back in court on Thursday and numerous police officers testified against him.

28-year-old Michael Galindo is  accused of robbing the Git 'N Split gas station on January 15th.

Yesterday in court, five members from the Scottsbluff Police Department took the stand and explained what they found in the course of the investigation.

Captain Brian Wasson said that he scrutinized security footage from the gas station, and noted specific clothing items that the robber was wearing. A blue bandana, white rimmed sunglasses, grey stocking cap, and a pair of white gloves stood out.

Officer William Howton explained how he was dispatched to Valley Bank after employees recognized the photo that police had issued. They said a similar looking man was in their bank earlier in the day. Howton testified that he was able to identify Michael Galindo from Valley Bank's security video.

Later that evening, Howton was dispatched to a disturbance near 20th Street and 11th Avenue. No suspects were found, and he stopped into Shari's because it was the only business open at that hour. Officer Howton said he saw Galindo and Jessie Salazar sitting in a booth. Galindo had a light blue bandana, and one white glove was found under his booth.

Judge Kris Mickey determined that there was enough evidence to bind this case over to Scotts Bluff County District Court.

He will be arraigned on the charges of Robbery and Possession of a Controlled Substance on February 7th at 1 p.m.

He is still being detained on a one-million-dollar bond at 10%.
