NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — Another Wyoming man has been sentenced to 18 to 36 months in prison in a botched bank robbery in western Nebraska.
Drew Steier, 21, was sentenced Monday in Lincoln County District Court. Steier told the judge that he regretted what he did and was glad no one was injured.
Steier's accomplice, Tracy Black, 53, was given the same sentence last month.
Authorities say Black was the getaway driver in the attempted robbery of Farmers State Bank in Wallace in August. Steier went into the bank wearing a ski mask and wielding a BB gun. Steier fled without any money and drove away with Black, who was waiting in a pickup truck outside.
They were arrested near Imperial about an hour later.
Both men are from Evanston, Wyo.
