(POCATELLO, ID) – A man convicted of robbing a Pocatello bank last year, as well as ten other banks across the country will serve 11 years in federal prison. Michael Brewster earned the nickname “Bucket List Bandit” after he told a Utah bank teller that he only had a few months to live – a claim that was later revealed to be a lie. Brewster robbed the Ireland Bank in Pocatello on July 6, 2012. He was arrested two months later in Eire, Pennsylvania.
