February 16, 2019

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man has been sentenced to more than eight years in federal prison for wielding a gun during a bank robbery.

Federal prosecutors for Nebraska say 38-year-old Thomas Woodard was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Omaha to 100 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay more than $27,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say that on Dec. 7, 2012, Woodard and another man robbed the SAC Federal Credit Union in Plattsmouth. Woodard and co-defendant Joseph Lanckriet were arrested four years later in Sioux City, Iowa. The pair is suspected of committing a robbery in that city in 2014.
