Authorities say a 49-year-old man has been given 63 months in prison for robbing a bank branch in southeast Omaha.

Federal prosecutors said Jesus Robles of Omaha also must serve three years of supervised release.

Robles was convicted of robbing a Wells Fargo Bank branch on Aug. 13, 2012. No one was injured.

Robles had escaped with $297, but Omaha officers soon found him hiding in some bushes a couple of blocks away.
