A La Marque man on Friday received a 15-year sentence for robbing a bank.

In early August, Isaac Herrera, 41, was detained by police hours after a man robbed the Associated Credit Union of Texas bank, 920 First Street in La Marque. The man threatened the teller that he would detonate a bomb on the roof if he wasn't given money.

The man took $3,800 cash and left on foot. No one was hurt at the bank, and there was no bomb.

Police later found Herrera at a half-way house not far from the bank. He was taken into custody on a parole violation, interviewed by local police and ultimately charged with robbing the bank. 

He was held on $250,000 bond at the Galveston County jail.

Herrera pled guilty on Friday in the 122nd District Court. He'll serve 15 years in a state prison for robbery, a second degree felony.
