DALLAS (AP) - A 19-year-old from Garland whose mother identified him to the FBI has been sentenced to almost five years in federal prison after pleading guilty to three counts of bank robbery.

Anthony Blue, who pleaded guilty in January, was sentenced Monday. U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldana says Blue was sentenced by U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey to four years and 11 months in prison.

Investigators say Blue held up State Bank of Texas in Garland on June 14, 2011, and then later that day robbed Community Bank in Rockwall by using the same note demanding cash.

Authorities say Blue robbed American Nation Bank in Quinlan on July 8, 2011, using a different note.

His mother called the FBI after visiting a website that tracks bank robberies.
