A bank robber who was caught after running out of gas a half hour after taking more than $4,000 and a tracker is facing up to two years in prison after pleading no contest to the felony.
Michael Wayne Brady, 61, changed his plea rather than stand trial next week on the same charge. He will be sentenced Jan. 13.
A man later identified as Brady entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 1145 Broadway in Burlingame shortly before noon July 22. The man told the teller had had a gun and was given $4,750 which included bait money and a tracker. Brady left but was apprehended about 30 minutes later in South San Francisco where he had run out of gas, according to prosecutors.
Police found the money inside his vehicle.
He remains in custody on $50,000 bail pending sentencing.
