KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A 34-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for an armed bank robbery in suburban Kansas City.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/1NsfTJi ) reports that 34-year-old Landein Craddock, of Kansas City, Missouri, admitted in his plea that he displayed a revolver when he and another man robbed the Bank of the West in Overland Park, Kansas.

Authorities say Craddock shouted at employees and customers to get on the ground and pointed a gun in the face of one of the bank employees. Another man, who is awaiting sentencing, jumped the counter and collected money from tellers.

Shortly after the robbery, police spotted the two men and pursued their vehicle until it crashed in Kansas City, Missouri. Craddock was arrested about a block away from the accident scene.
