A man who held up a Downtown Long Beach bank last year was sentenced today to seven years in federal prison for a pair of bank robberies, authorities said.

Dino Tabar Trias, 45, admitted to robbing a Comerica bank branch at Long Beach and Ocean boulevards around 10 a.m. on Jan. 22.

“During that robbery, he displayed and brandished what appeared to be a handgun and demanded that the teller hand over the bank’s money,” prosecutors said in a statement. “The teller, fearing for her life, handed $1,156 in cash to Trias.”

This was Trias’ second bank robbery, according to authorities.

On Dec. 7, 2018, he’d robbed a Rabobank in Grover Beach in San Luis Obispo County, according to federal officials.

“During the robbery, he showed a teller what appeared to be a gun in his waistband while he demanded the teller give him all of her money,” prosecutors said. “The teller gave Trias $2,350 in cash.”

Trias pleaded guilty in September to one count of armed bank robbery. As part of his sentence, a federal judge also ordered him to pay back $4,001 to the banks he robbed.

Authorities said Trias is from Kern County but was transient and also had ties to Sacramento. He was arrested in February.
