A man was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday for a robbery at a Redwood City credit union, according to prosecutors.

Carmen Polito, 30, pleaded no contest in March in connection with the July 23, 2013 robbery of the Provident Credit Union at 210 Redwood Shores Parkway, according to San Mateo District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

No weapon was displayed in the robbery, in which the suspect handed a teller a note ordering him to hand over the money.

Polito was identified as a suspect in the robbery due in part to his distinctive tattoos, Wagstaffe said.

In addition to the prison sentence, Polito was ordered to pay restitution to the credit union of $454, Wagstaffe said.
