ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque man has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank in New Mexico three months ago.
Prosecutors say 36-year-old Richard Sedillo entered in a plea agreement Monday with the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Sedillo was accused of robbing a Bank of Albuquerque branch located inside a supermarket on May 30 and then fleeing in a pickup truck.
A bank teller provided authorities with the license plate of the vehicle and Sedillo was arrested hours later.
He was indicted in the case in June.
Sedillo has been in federal custody since his arrest and remains detained pending his sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.
Prosecutors say Sedillo faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
