2nd Wisconsin Man Sentenced For Minnesota Bank Robbery

Court ActionMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A second Wisconsin man has been sentenced for robbing a Minnesota bank last April.

Twenty-four-year-old Andrew James Larson of Eau Claire was sentenced Monday to more than five years in prison.

Larson pleaded guilty in July to robbing a TCF Bank in the Twin Cities suburb of Maplewood.

Another Wisconsin man, 26-year-old Derek Lombard of Cumberland, pleaded guilty to the same charge. Lombard was sentenced to 11 years in prison last October.

In their plea agreements, Larson and Lombard admitted stealing more than $13,700 from the bank. Authorities say the bank was robbed by two men, one of whom was holding what turned out to be a toy handgun.

The two suspects crashed their car on Interstate 694 after a chase and tried to run away but were caught.
