A bank robber who was caught after running out of gas a half hour after taking more than $4,000 and a tracker was sentenced Monday to time served and probation.
Michael Wayne Brady, 61, faced up to two years in prison after pleading no contest to felony robbery but Monday received a 464-day sentence with credit of the equivalent amount earned while in custody on $50,000 bail.
Brady was arrested July 22 about a half hour after a man later identified as him entered the Wells Fargo bank at 1145 Broadway in Burlingame shortly before noon. The man told the teller he 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.
