Waynesville Man Sentenced for Bank Robbery


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Waynesville, Mo., man was sentenced in federal court today for robbing Security Bank of Pulaski County in St. Robert, Mo.

Arthur John Green, 42, of Waynesville, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool to 12 years and seven months in federal prison without parole.

On April 2, 2014, Green pleaded guilty to robbing the Security Bank of Pulaski County. Green entered the bank on Feb. 20, 2014, and handed a teller a note that demanded money. The teller gave him $1,100 and he quickly left the bank. Several hours later, a Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputy spotted Green’s vehicle. Green pulled over and was arrested without incident.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Carney. It was investigated by the Pulaski County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department and the FBI.
