Bellevue Man Sentenced for Bank Theft

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Manuel Torres-Zapien, age 23, was sentenced in federal court Monday in Omaha, Nebraska, for one count of bank theft.  The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Mitchell to three years’ probation.    

Torres-Zapien was formerly employed by Rochester Armored Car.  On September 5, 2017, while employed as a driver, he took a bag of currency bound for a Bucky’s Gas Station ATM.  The money belonged to Security National Bank.  Rochester was supposed to have 61 bags of currency that day and when they checked their logs they discovered there were only 60.  Torres-Zapien admitted to taking the bag containing $20,000 and returned it in full. 

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
