PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — A man who stole a car in Mas­sachusetts then used it as the get­away ve­hi­cle after rob­bing a bank in Rhode Is­land has been sen­tenced to four years in prison.

Fed­eral prose­cu­tors said Thurs­day that 28-year-old Cody Too­lis, of Fall River, Mas­sachusetts, was also sen­tenced to two years of pro­ba­tion and or­dered to re­pay the bank the $460 he stole.

Author­i­ties say on April 2 he stole a car from out­side a home in New Bed­ford, Mas­sachusetts. About two hours later he robbed a Bank New­port branch in Tiver­ton and fled in the stolen ve­hi­cle.

He turned him­self in about a week later after learn­ing author­i­ties were after him.

Too­lis pleaded guilty in Au­gust.
