Arlington bank robber gets 20 years

DALLAS (AP) — A gunman who pleaded guilty to five bank robberies in the Dallas area has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

De la Garza in November pleaded guilty to five holdups that happened last year — in Arlington, Grand Prairie, Dallas, Farmers Branch and Garland. He confessed to more than a dozen other bank holdups since 2010.
