ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank last year and is facing up to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say 55-year-old Randy Lee Gallahan had a change of plea hearing Thursday.

Gallahan was arrested on May 3, 2014 on a criminal complaint alleging he robbed a Bank of America branch in Albuquerque earlier that day.

He was later indicted and charged with armed bank robbery.

Gallahan admitted robbing the bank by approaching a bank teller and suggesting that he had a gun or weapon.

Tracked down later at an apartment complex, police say Gallahan was wearing the same clothes he wore during the robbery, had stolen bank money in his pants pocket and a replica handgun in his jacket.

His sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled.
