Albuquerque man sentenced for armed bank robbery

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Jeremy Gabriel Trujillo was sentenced Thursday to 130 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for armed bank robbery and firearms charges.

The 35-year-old was arrested last year after robbing the Bank of Albuquerque branch on Wyoming Boulevard. The criminal complaint stated Trujillo robbed the bank at gunpoint.

He was then indicted and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, armed bank robbery and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

He was previously convicted of at least two other felony offenses.

During Thursday’s sentencing hearing, Trujillo was ordered to pay restitution to the Bank of Albuquerque. He was also ordered to pay restitution to two other Albuquerque-area banks which were robbed at gunpoint in April 2014 and May 2014.
