OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man has been sentenced to nearly five years in federal prison for robbing a Plattsmouth bank in 2012.
Federal prosecutors for Nebraska say 28-year-old Joseph Lanckriet was sentenced Thursday to 56 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay more than $27,000 in restitution.
Prosecutors say that on Dec. 7, 2012, Lanckriet and another man robbed the SAC Federal Credit Union in Plattsmouth. Lanckriet and co-defendant Thomas Woodard were arrested four years later in Sioux City, Iowa. The pair is suspected of committing a robbery in that city in 2014.
Woodard was sentenced in February to more than eight years for the crime. Investigators say they brandished a pellet gun in the robbery and later tied an employee's hands behind her back and threatened to hurt her if she called police.
