TOPEKA, KS—A Colorado man pleaded guilty today to a bank robbery in Lawrence, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Matthew W. Headley, 37, Canon City, Colorado, pleaded guilty to a September 5, 2013 robbery at the U.S. Bank at 1807 W. 23rd Street in Lawrence. In his plea, he admitted he was wearing a golf hat and pajama pants when entering the bank and handed a teller a note saying, “100s and 50s now.” Officers of the Lawrence Police Department arrested him soon after that at a convenience store not far from the bank.

Sentencing is set for June 9. Both sides have agreed to recommend a sentence of 24 months in federal prison. Grissom commended the Lawrence Police Department, the FBI, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Warner for their work on the case.
