BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — A 24-year-old man who a month after being released from prison for a bank robbery held up the same bank and teller has been sentenced to more than 10 years behind bars.
Joshua James Driskell was arrested for robbing a Key Bank branch in Bremerton, Washington in October. He had just completed his prison sentence for the 2010 robbery.
The Kitsap Sun says (http://is.gd/2Fwgz8 ) court documents show Driskell went into the bank on Oct. 23 and gave the teller a note demanding $10,000.
A detective recognized him from security footage, and the teller gave police a partial license plate number of the getaway vehicle.
Driskell told police he spent some of the $2,000 he got from the robbery on marijuana. He was sentenced last week to 129 months in prison.
