DAKOTA CITY, Neb. — A 28-year-old Iowa man is scheduled to be sentenced in March for a bank robbery in northeast Nebraska.

Robert Thomas of Marshalltown pleaded no contest this week to a charge of attempted robbery. Prosecutors lowered the original robbery charge in exchange for his plea.

Police say Thomas robbed a Bank of the West branch in South Sioux City on July 23, getting away that day with nearly $6,200. — AP
