NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal judge in New Orleans has sentenced a man to 20 years in prison for a pair of 2011 robberies that netted more than $130,000 - including cash that records say was literally “laundered.”

The New Orleans Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/12OozVL ) that the sentence was handed down Wednesday for 35-year-old Brian Keith “Beano” Hayes.

Much of the cash from the second robbery, of a Capital One branch in Metairie, was stained with red dye from a bank security pack. According to court records, the robbers tried to clean it up in a washing machine, which only turned the cash pink.

Hayes later admitted enlisting help from several men to take the money to a casino, where they inserted it in slot machines and change kiosks to get some un-stained cash.
