WICHITA, KAN. -- A Valley Center man has been sentenced to federal prison for a 2012 bank robbery, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Dlaney M. Nixon, 24, Valley Center, Kan., was sentenced to 140 months in federal prison. He pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. Nixon and two other defendants -- Henry J. Adams, III and Terry G. Revels -- were indicted in October 2012. Court documents alleged that on Oct. 15, 2012, the men robbed the Intrust Bank at 142 N. Ash in Valley Center. Nixon and Revels entered the bank wearing ski masks and hoodies and carrying black bags, Johnson waited outside in a white Cadillac to act as a lookout. They took money from bank tellers’ drawers and fled the bank.

Officers responding to the robbery located the Cadillac near 81st North and West Street in Valley Center and chased the car several miles before it stopped on Sheriden Court and the robbers fled on foot in different directions.

Nixon was arrested following a foot chase after he fled the car.
