Kansas City bank robbery sends man back to prison
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A man who robbed a Kansas City bank because he wanted to return to prison has been ordered to spend 15 years there.
63-year-old Sidney Williams was sentenced Wednesday for robbing a Bank Midwest branch in November 2015 while armed with a revolver and wearing a mask.
The Kansas City Star reports that a bank security guard chased down and tackled Williams after the robbery, with a passer-by stopping to help.
Williams told investigators he robbed the bank because he wanted to go back to prison. He said the gun wasn't loaded.
