Allen Azaryan Sentenced For Robbing Lubbock Wells Fargo
The man that pleaded guilty to robbing a Lubbock bank late last year has been sentenced.
40-year-old Allen Azaryan, most recently of Burbank, California, has been sentenced to 41 months in federal prison.
The sentence comes following his February 2012 guilty plea to one count of bank robbery.
Azaryan went into the Wells Fargo Bank at 1500 Broadway on December 8th, 2011, and handed the teller a note that read: “This is a robbery [sic] give my [sic] all the money.” Azaryan told the teller to give him a bag, and another teller provided one.
He left the bank with money in the bag just before 2:30 that afternoon.
A teller alerted a Lubbock Police Department officer that was behind Azaryan at the bank, and the officer followed Azaryan out of the bank with his firearm drawn.
When he was about 12 feet away from Azaryan, the officer pointed his firearm at Azaryan and ordered him to the ground. Azaryan dropped the black bank bag containing the money.
