A man accused of holding up a bank in Tallahassee and another one in Atlanta is now headed to prison for it.

Forty-two-year-old Dwane Walker was sentenced in federal court Tuesday morning to ten years behind bars and ordered to pay back more than$ 23,000 stolen in the holdups.

Walker pleaded guilty to robbing the Wachovia Bank on Mahan Drive last September and holding up a Bank of America in Atlanta three days later.

Witnesses say he was easy to identify because he has only one arm.
