WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been sentenced to seven years in prison in a Wichita bank robbery.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 30-year-old Andre Bryant, of Wichita, was sentenced Monday for robbing a Carson Bank branch in June with two other men.

Prosecutors allege that one man waited in a car while two armed men entered the bank, forced employees to enter codes to open a vault and fled with cash. The money they received contained a global positioning device that police used to track and arrest them.

Co-defendants Raishat Magill and Elijah Shelton are set for sentencing Thursday.
