West has been charged with one count of aggravated bank robbery, one count of using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

If convicted, West faces a maximum of 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for aggravated bank robbery, a mandatory five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, and up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

West was arrested the following evening by Amarillo police officers and FBI special agents. A date has not been set for West to make his initial appearance in federal court.
