Matthew W. Headley, 37, Canon City, Colo., pleaded guilty to a Sept. 5, 2013, robbery at the US Bank, 1807 W. 23rd Street in Lawrence. In his plea he admitted he was wearing a golf hat and pajama pants when entered the bank and handed a teller a note saying, “100s and 50s now.” Officers of the Lawrence Police Department arrested him soon after that at a convenience store not far from the bank.
