Lyons Man Sentenced
in Reno County Bank Robbery
WICHITA, KAN. – A Lyons, Kan., man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for robbing a bank in Arlington, Kan., with a sawed off shotgun, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.
Jacob W. Schrock, 27, Lyons, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. In his plea, he admitted that on Sept. 13, 2011, he robbed the Citizen’s Community Bank in Arlington. He walked into the bank about 10:45 a.m. carrying a sawed off shotgun and wearing a cowboy hat, sunglasses, vest and blue bandana covering his face.
Schrock was arrested less than half an hour later when a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper pulled him over on Salem Road near Highway 50 in Reno County.
Grissom commended the Kansas Highway Patrol, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch for their work on the case.
