A Plattsmouth, Neb., man was sentenced to 24 months probation for receiving more than $1,500 in stolen money.
Gabriel L. Coen, 29, had pleaded no contest to the felony charge and was sentenced Monday by Cass County District Court Judge Jeffrey Funke.
Coen's ex-wife, Brandi Coen, 32, will be sentenced on the same charge next week.
The two told police that they didn't know the money was stolen from the Sac Federal Credit Union in Plattsmouth during a robbery last winter. A friend, Caleb Searcy, 22, who sometimes stayed at their apartment, had given it to them, they said
Searcy told police that he found two money boxes belonging to the bank near a tent in which he was living at the time. Searcy is serving four to eight years for possessing the stolen money.
No one has been charged with the actual robbery. According to police reports, two individuals entered the credit union on Dec. 7 and took cash and two containers of money. One is the container Searcy said he found in the woods. Police found the other one near the tent; it still contained $7,900.
Plattsmouth police said $10,300 remains unaccounted for. The bank robbers stuffed the cash in their pockets and a duffel bag.
