BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport man has been sentenced to life in prison for robbing two banks.

Francisco Deida, 47, and an accomplice made off with $84,000 from the Webster Bank on Merwin Avenue in Milford two and a half years ago.

Police say he wore heavy winter clothing and opened an umbrella in an attempt to conceal his face from surveillance cameras.

A little over two months later, Deida and two masked men robbed the TD Bank on Amity Road in Woodbridge.
