INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A career bank robber and three of his accomplices have been sentenced to prison in a suburban Indianapolis bank heist.

The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1M2oEWW ) reports that 39-year-old Deandre Armour was sentenced Monday to 27 years in federal prison. He also faces five years of supervised release once his prison sentence has ended.

Twenty-eight-year-old Duryea Rogers, 27-year-old Xavier Hardy and 42-year-old Tahitia Burnett were sentenced to 12, 11 and seven years, respectively.

Court documents show a federal investigation into Armour began in early June 2013 when the FBI learned that he was planning to commit a number of bank robberies in the Indianapolis area.

Armour and his Fort Wayne-area crew were arrested later that month after they attempted to rob a bank in Fishers.
