Lubbock Active Jail Roster

A man that robbed two banks has been sentenced Friday afternoon.

Russell Eugene Heath of Lubbock received more than 24 years in prison for his role in bank robberies in Lubbock and Amarillo.

The 45-year-old Heath pleaded guilty in November 2013 to one count of aggravated bank robbery and one count of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Heath’s aggravated bank robbery conviction comes from the May 1st, 2013 robbery of Lubbock National Bank in the 4400 block of 19th Street. He pointed a gun at the tellers, jumped over the counter, and began stuffing money in his pockets.

He ran from the bank to a waiting vehicle driven by 31-year-old Gabriel Tenorio, who was sentenced to more than 11 years in prison in December of 2013 for his role in the bank robberies.

Heath’s conviction for possessing a firearm in furtherance of a violent crime stems from the May 20th, 2013 robbery of FirstBank Southwest Bank in Amarillo.

The case was investigated by the FBI, Lubbock Police, Amarillo Police, and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office.
