Man sentenced to 4 years in prison in Missouri bank heistPosted on 16 January 2020 at 9:06am
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for robbing a St. Louis County bank.
The U.S. attorney's office says 57-year-old Mitchell Finley was sentenced Wednesday for the heist and for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Court documents say he approached a teller in April, placed a white bag on the counter and announced that he was robbing the bank. The teller put $4,131 into the bag. He then went to a nearby restaurant, where he was arrested.
A backpack that was found next to him contained the clothing he wore during the bank robbery and the stolen money.
