Man sentenced to 4 years in prison for bank robberies in El Cajon, Hillcrest

A Campo man was sentenced Friday to four years in federal prison for committing two robberies last September at San Diego County banks, as well as violating his release conditions in an unrelated case.

Eric Tyler Oxenham, 27, pleaded guilty earlier this year to robbing tellers Sept. 24 at a California Bank & Trust in El Cajon and Sept. 30 at a U.S. Bank on West Washington Street in Hillcrest. On each occasion he presented demand notes to the tellers, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Oxenham made off with more than $2,000 in cash in the robberies, prosecutors said.

He was arrested about a month after the second robbery, with investigators using surveillance footage to identity his getaway vehicle, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Along with the robberies, Oxenham received additional time for violating the conditions of supervised release stemming from a prior conviction of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
