A federal judge sentenced a man who pointed a gun in the face of an Overland Park bank employee during a January robbery to 15 years in prison.
Landein Craddock, 34, of Kansas City, had pleaded guilty in September to one count of armed bank robbery. Craddock admitted in his plea that he and another man robbed the Bank of the West at 9400 Antioch Road in Overland Park on Jan. 29, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Kansas.
During the robbery, Craddock displayed a revolver and shouted at employees and customers to get on the ground. He also admitted to pointing a gun in the face of one of the bank employees while his accomplice collected money from the tellers.
Police saw the two in a car shortly after the robbery and a chase ensued. When the car crashed in Kansas City, Craddock fled on foot but was arrested about a block away.
Craddock’s co-defendent in the case, Jerome Davis, 32, of Kansas City, is awaiting sentencing.
