ALBUQUERQUE—Earlier today in federal court, Anthony Campos, 33, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was sentenced to a 30-month term of imprisonment for his bank robbery conviction.

Campos will be on supervised release for three years after completing his prison sentence. Campos also was ordered to pay full restitution to the victim bank.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth J. Gonzales said that Campos pleaded guilty on June 13, 2012, to robbing the Bank of the West branch located at 780 Juan Tabo NE in Albuquerque on February 6, 2012.

In entering his guilty plea, Campos admitted that he walked into the bank and handed the bank teller a note that read, “Empty the register, I have a gun.”

Court records reflect that after Campos obtained cash from the bank teller, he fled from the bank on foot.

Officers of the Albuquerque Police Department apprehended Campos a short time later and recovered a bundle of cash from his car.

After the bank teller positively identified Campos as the bank robber, Campos was arrested and taken into custody by the FBI. Campos has been in federal custody since that time.

The case was investigated by the Albuquerque office of the FBI and the Albuquerque Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jon K. Stanford.
