Life sentence given to Bridgeport bank robber
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.
