A man pleaded guilty to charges that he robbed his Tacoma bank last year.
Robert Rios Jr., 65, entered a guilty plea to the lesser charge of first-degree theft, and was sentenced Jan. 25 to 90 days in custody, which he was to start serving through home detention Feb. 8.
He was originally charged with first-degree robbery.
According to the original charging papers:
Rios entered the Chase Bank he uses near North 26th and Pearl streets Nov. 19, handed the teller a note that said "This is a robbie?" and insisted repeatedly he was not joking. She recognized him as a customer.
He was apologetic, she said. She gave him money and he left.
When officers found him nearby, he said he had messed up and asked them "How much did I get?"
Rios was ordered not to have any contact with Chase Bank.
