Prison For Dallas Bank Robber Who Showed 2 Forms Of ID

DALLAS (AP) – A Dallas bank robber who abided by a teller’s request to provide two forms of identification before she could give him money is going to prison.

A federal judge Tuesday sentenced 49-year-old Nathan Wayne Pugh of Sachse to more than eight years. Prosecutors say Pugh last July, while on parole for two aggravated robberies, robbed a Wells Fargo Bank.

The teller stalled and told Pugh that he needed two forms of ID. Pugh showed her his Wells Fargo debit card, then a Texas state ID card with his name. Pugh was caught as he tried to flee.

Pugh pleaded guilty in October to the bank robbery count. His bank robbery sentence of 102 months will run consecutive to the 25-year terms he must serve for the previous robberies.

Prosecutors did not immediately provide further details on the conviction.

    I guess it’s true, you need at least a high school education to be a criminal.

    I needed a good laugh today lol

    How is it that the new robbery sentence is running concurrent with the two other robbery sentences? The man should have been sentenced to more than just finishing out his conviction for the previous two robberies. The criminal justice system is a joke.

      OK, so you didn’t graduate high school either. if this guy is 49 now, has to do 25 years, that would make him 74 when he gets out, it might be safe for us then, what good would adding more years do??
