A 38-year-old Colorado man was sentenced to two years in federal prison for a Lawrence bank robbery last year, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced Monday.
Matthew W. Headly, of Canon City, Colo, had pleaded guilty to a Sept. 5, 2013, robbery at the US Bank on 1807 W. 23rd St.
Headly admitted in his plea to wearing a golf hat and pajama pants when entering the bank. He handed the teller a note saying "100s and 50s now," according to the plea.
Officers with the Lawrence Police Department arrested Headly at a nearby convenience store soon after the robbery.
