Canadian prisoner sentenced for 1992 California bank holdup

EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — A man in a Canadian prison has pleaded guilty to robbing a Southern California bank more than three decades ago. Iridian Grenada entered the plea in a San Diego federal court by video on Wednesday. He was sentenced to more than seven years in prison but got credit for time served in another case. Prosecutors say that in 1992, Grenada used a gun and a fake bomb to rob a Union Bank branch in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon. Grenada has a decades-long criminal history and has been imprisoned in Canada since 1993. His attorneys say he's changed his life during that time.
