Prison For Texas Bank Robber, 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.

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