(MGN Online)

A San Antonio man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a series of bank robberies in 2016.

A federal judge sentenced 31-year-old David Lee Sartin to 121 months in federal prison for his role in five bank robberies and one attempted bank robbery during the summer of 2016.

According to the factual basis filed in this case, Sartin was responsible for robberies that occurred at:

  • Comerica Bank in Helotes, TX, on July 21, 2016
  • Southwest Research Center Federal Credit Union in San Antonio on July 22, 2016
  • Chase Bank in San Antonio and Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union in Bulverde, TX, on July 29, 2016
  • Generations Federal Credit Union in San Antonio (*attempted) and Amegy Bank of Texas in San Antonio on August 8, 2016.

FBI agents arrested Sartin as he arrived at his residence following the Amegy Bank of Texas robbery on August 8, 2016. At the time of Sartin's arrest, agents recovered the money stolen from Amegy Bank of Texas along with the demand note used and the clothing and mask worn by the defendant during the robbery.

During all of the robberies, Sartin wore and olive green/tan suit, a baseball hat, sunglasses and a unique silicone "old man" mask.

On January 30, 2017, Sartin's roommate and co-defendant Jason Lynn Hathorn was sentenced to 78 months in federal prison for assisting Sartin in carrying out the bank robberies.

Sartin is ordered to pay $26,204 restitution, ordered by United States District Judge Xavier Rodriguez. He will also be placed on supervised release for five years after completing his prison term.
