ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — A Shiprock man has been sentenced to 2 ½ years in federal prison for robbing a Farmington bank.
Prosecutors say 20-year-old Ryan Lowe also was sentenced Tuesday to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay an undisclosed amount of restitution.
Lowe was arrested last June on a criminal complaint alleging that he robbed the Citizens Bank branch in Farmington.
According to court filings, Lowe robbed the bank by presenting a demand note to a teller and taking cash on Feb. 13, 2014.
The FBI says witnesses provided evidence that led to Lowe's arrest.
Lowe pleaded guilty in the case last September.
