[ARCHIVED] Abilene Bank Robber Sentenced to Ten Years


Abilene, Texas – An Albuquerque man who is accused of robbing the Chase Bank in South Abilene back in March was sentenced in a Lubbock District Court to ten years in prison.

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 29, Fernando Enriquez entered the Chase Bank located in the 3200 block of Rebecca, displayed a weapon, demanded money, and fled the store in a vehicle. He was stopped by police an hour later in Merkel and brought back to the Police Department, where he was later arrested for the robbery. Enriquez has been linked to a string of other bank robberies in Texas, New Mexico, Mississippi, and California.

The Abilene Police Department assisted the Federal Bureau of Investigations to help bring this case to a close. The department also thanks the alert citizen who was in the bank when the robbery occurred and assisted in identifying Enriquez.
