An Odessa bank robber is headed to federal prison.

32-year-old Jerry Johnny Gasca was sentenced to five years in the slammer for robbing the Southwest Bank on 8th Street back in November.

Gasca admitted to handing the teller a note demanding the cash, which ended with, "thank you and have a nice day."

Gasca got away with more than 15 grand.

He was arrested the next day at his home.

When Gasca gets out of prison, he'll be on probation for 3 years.
