Colorado Man Sentenced for Bank Robbery in Lawrence

TOPEKA, KS—A Colorado man was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison for a bank robbery in Lawrence, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Matthew W. Headley, 38, Canon City, Colorado, pleaded guilty to a September 5, 2013 robbery at the U.S. Bank branch at 1807 W. 23rd Street in Lawrence. In his plea, he admitted he was wearing a golf hat and pajama pants when entered 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.

Grissom commended the Lawrence Police Department, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Warner for their work on the case.
