OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man with a robbery record has been imprisoned for an Omaha bank heist.
Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Robert Sanford, of Omaha, was sentenced last week in U.S. District Court in Omaha for robbing the bank on Dec. 26 last year. Sanford was given 12½ years behind bars and was ordered to pay more than $4,300 in restitution.
Prosecutors say Sanford didn't have a gun when he menaced a teller at the Bank of the West branch in southeast Omaha. He had two prior robbery convictions and was sentenced as a career offender.
