December 13, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a man has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for robbing a Lincoln bank earlier this year.

U.S. Attorney for Nebraska Joe Kelly says 30-year-old Kevin Brown was sentenced Thursday in Lincoln’s federal court. Brown was also ordered to pay nearly $85,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say Brown and at least one other person robbed a Great Western Bank branch on Old Cheney Road in Lincoln on June 22.

Police determined the robbers left the bank in a car rented from an Omaha business. Brown was arrested the day after the robbery when he returned the car. Police found a mask and other items believed to have been used in the robbery on Brown.
