Tampa bank robber gets more than 41 years prison

TAMPA — A federal judge sentenced a Tampa man to 41 years and two months in prison last week for two bank robberies and other related charges.

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Kovachevich sentenced Francisco Feliciano, 41, after a jury in June found him guilty of attempting to rob the First Bank in Lutz with an accomplice, Steven Trubey. But bank tellers who saw them enter the bank hid from him, and the pair left without any money.

Ten days later, Feliciano, Trubey and Christopher Quinn robbed the San Antonio Federal Credit Union in Pasco County using a gun and a fake bomb, prosecutors said. They walked away with about $10,766.

Trubey and Quinn pleaded guilty. In March, Quinn was sentenced to 14 years and eight months in prison. In June, Trubey was sentenced to eight years and five months in prison.
