TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka man has been sentenced to three years and four months in federal prison for robbing a man who stocked ATMs with cash.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 26-year-old Pattrick Towner, of Topeka, was sentenced Wednesday for one count of armed robbery.

He admitted through his plea that he was the masked gunman who entered a Topeka convenience store in September 2014 just as the victim was beginning to fill an ATM. Towner took the money and the keys to the victim’s van before escaping in the vehicle.

A store clerk was previously sentenced to two years in federal prison for helping to plan the robbery by providing the date and time the victim would fill the ATM.
