Bank Robber Sentenced to 70 Months in Federal Prison for Robbing a Garland, Texas Branch of Bank of America
DALLAS — A Dallas man, who robbed a Garland, Texas branch of Bank of America last year, was sentenced this afternoon in federal court in Dallas, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.
Jason Wayne Hulsebus, 34, was sentenced to 70 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $10,090 in restitution, following his guilty plea in February 2014 to one count of bank robbery.
Hulsebus admitted that on October 25, 2013, he robbed the Bank of America, located at 5402 North President George Bush Highway in Garland. When he entered the bank, he approached the teller and passed a piece of paper that stated, “Do not scream! I will not hurt you! Give me all the money in the drawer now!” In fear of her life, the teller placed the cash inside a Wal-Mart bag supplied by Hulsebus. While standing at the teller counter, Hulsebus held a BB pistol in his hand, but because of the counter’s height, the teller never saw the pistol. Hulsebus fled the bank with the money.
Evidence recovered from the robbery indicated Hulsebus was the robber. He was arrested on November 13, 2013, on a federal criminal complaint.
The Garland Police Department and the FBI investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson prosecuted.
