POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A man convicted of robbing a Wells Fargo bank in Pompano Beach earlier this year was sentenced Friday to more than four years in federal prison.

Craig Naughtin, 43, will spend 52 months behind bars after the Feb. 3 robbery.

According to prosecutors, Naughtin walked into the bank at 3885 N. Federal Highway and handed a note to a bank teller which read, "No this is not a joke -- all the money in the cash draw, no GPS, no dye packs. I'll be on my way no problems."

After his prison term, Naughtin will serve three years of supervised release and will have to pay more than $3,000 in restitution.

Broward Sheriff's Office deputies arrested Naughtin a day after the robbery and found the note along with $3,561.

Naughtin pleaded guilty to the bank robbery in April and faced up to 20 years in prison.
