ALBUQUERQUE—Jaime Jesus Sanchez-Ramos, 23, a Mexican national, was sentenced this afternoon to 46 months in prison for his bank robbery conviction. Sanchez-Ramos will be deported to Mexico after he completes his prison sentence. He also was ordered to pay restitution to the four banks he robbed between January 2012 and April 2012.

Sanchez-Ramos was arrested on April 10, 2012, on a criminal complaint charging him with robbing a bank on April 2, 2012. On May 8, 2012, Sanchez-Ramos was indicted and charged with robbing the following four Santa Fe-area banks: (1) the Century Bank located at 1790 Saint Michael’s Drive on January 26, 2012; (2) the New Mexico Bank and Trust located at 1549 Paseo de Peralta on February 15, 2012; (3) the Bank of Albuquerque located at 706 Saint Michael’s Drive on March 16, 2012 ; and (4) the U.S. Bank located at 3787 Cerrillos Road on April 2, 2012.

On November 9, 2012, Sanchez-Ramos pled guilty to count four of the indictment, charging him with robbing the U.S. Bank on April 2, 2012, with the stipulation that he would be responsible for restitution to all four banks he robbed.

Under the terms of his plea agreement, the court dismissed the three remaining counts of the indictment after Sanchez-Ramos was sentenced.

The case was investigated by the Santa Fe Resident Agency of the FBI and the Santa Fe Police Department, and it was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Lynn W.Y. Wang and C. Paige Messec.
