Robber who hit same bank and teller twice is sentenced

BREMERTON A 24-year-old man who, a month after being released from prison for a bank robbery, held up the same bank and teller has been sentenced to more than 10 years behind bars.
Joshua James Driskell was arrested for robbing a KeyBank branch in Bremerton in October. He had just completed his prison sentence for the 2010 robbery.
The Kitsap Sun says court documents show Driskell went into the bank Oct. 23 and gave the teller a note demanding $10,000.
A detective recognized him from security footage, and the teller gave police a partial license plate number of the getaway vehicle.
Driskell told police he spent some of the $2,000 he got from the robbery on marijuana. He was sentenced last week to 129 months in prison.
