FAIRFIELD — A Vallejo man who worked as a lookout during a March 2013 bank heist at a Pinole bank was sentenced Tuesday to 90 months in federal prison.
Kevin T. Buford, 28, and two others did the robbery that netted more than $3,200. He had cased the bank a few days before it was robbed, according to court records.
Gary C. Fite Jr., the man who went into the bank, pulled a gun and jumped the teller counter, has already pleaded guilty to an armed bank robbery charge. He got a 10-year prison sentence. The getaway driver, Regina L. Dean, got five years in prison for her role in the robbery.
In addition to the cash, Fite fled the bank with a concealed tracking device that enabled authorities to arrest Fite and Dean in Vallejo minutes after the robbery.
