The charges stem from the Feb. 10 robbery of the Wachovia bank at 2821 Chapel Hill Blvd., the attempted robbery of the State Employees Credit Union, 3810 Ben Franklin Blvd., and the robbery of RTP Federal Credit Union, 21 Park Drive, both on Feb. 11.

Taylor was previously charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection with the March 8 robbery of First South Bank at 4215 University Drive.

Taylor was being held in the Durham County jail under a $850,000 bond.
