KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Two Kansas City, Kansas, siblings have been sentenced in federal court for their roles in a Missouri bank robbery.

U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson says 25-year-old Charles Spencer was sentenced Tuesday to eight years and six months in federal prison, while his 29-year-old sister Virginia Spencer was sentenced to 10 years and three months.

Prosecutors say the two stole nearly $12,000 at gunpoint from the Bank Midwest in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, on May 23, 2014.

A customer who used the bank’s outside ATM called 911 after her car was nearly struck by the Spencers’ fleeing vehicle, driven by 23-year-old Steven Robinson of Kansas City, Kansas. The three were caught after their car crashed following a high-speed pursuit.

Robinson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years and eight months behind bars.
