ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — An Albuquerque man has been sentenced to nearly 13 years in federal prison for robbing a bank in 2012.

Prosecutors say 46-year-old Abran Felipe Armijo received a 151-month prison term Thursday followed by three years of supervised release.

Armijo was arrested hours after the BBVA Compass Bank branch was robbed on Jan. 4, 2012.

Authorities say Armijo entered the bank and demanded money from a bank teller with threat. He fled on foot after the teller gave him an undisclosed amount of cash.

Acting on a tip, police located Armijo in a southeast Albuquerque apartment where he was hiding in a closet with a plastic bag containing money.

He pleaded guilty in July 2013. Prosecutors say Armijo's sentence was enhanced because he had at least two previous violent crime convictions.
