Madison man gets eight years in prison for armed robbery
MADISON, Wis. — Justin McBride, 29, of Madison, was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for an armed bank robbery in February 2017.
McBride pleaded guilty to armed robbery in August, confirming that he robbed Old National Bank in Madison at gunpoint. McBride was identified as a white male wearing a scarf to hide his face and a stocking hat.
He also admitted to robbing Wells Fargo Bank in Middleton in January.
At the time of the February robbery, McBride announced he was willing to use the gun and a bank teller reported seeing the weapon. One of the tellers put a dye pack in with the money while handing it over to McBride. Once McBride left the bank the dye pack exploded and he fled the scene.
McBride was later identified by officers for having red dye on his hands and clothes. McBride’s arrest and charge followed an investigation by Madison and Middleton police departments along with the FBI.
