A man who admitted to robbing a northeast Iowa bank will spend more than seven years in federal prison. A U.S. District Court judge sentenced 49-year-old Tyrone Wilson of Postville to 87 months in prison for his June guilty plea to one count of bank robbery.
Officials say Wilson entered the State Bank in Calmar in May and grabbed a teller’s wrist and demanded money. He then jumped onto the counter and took $900. Investigators say Wilson spent most of the stolen money on cocaine after he fled the bank. He was later arrested in Rock Island, Illinois.
Wilson was order to pay $900 in restitution and more than $500 in lost profits to the bank.
