LOS ANGELES - A Kern County man was sentenced to seven years in prison for armed bank robberies in Long Beach and Grover Beach.
Dino Tabar Trias, 45, of Bakersfield was sentenced in Los Angeles on Monday.
On Jan. 22, 2019 Trias robbed a Comerica bank branch in downtown Long Beach. During the robbery, Trias pulled out what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash from a bank teller. The teller complied and gave Trias $1,156 in cash.
A month prior, on Dec. 7, 2018, Trias robbed a Rabobank in Grover Beach. During that robbery, Trias pulled a gun from his waistband and demanded the teller give him all of her money. Trias left the bank with $2,350 in cash from this robbery.
Trias has been in custody since February 2019. He pleaded guilty to one count of armed robbery in September.
He will serve 84 months in federal prison and was ordered to pay $4,001 in restitution to the two banks.
The robberies were investigated by the FBI, the Long Beach Police Department, the Grover Beach Police Department, and the Bakersfield Police Department.
