A Valley Center man was sentenced to 140 months in federal prison for his role in the robbery of the Valley Center branch of Intrust Bank.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 24-year-old Dlaney Nixon pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. Dlaney along with two other defendants, Henry J. Adams III and Terry G. Revels were indicted in October of last year following the October 15 robbery of the Intrust Bank at 142 N. Ash in Valley Center.
Authorities say Adams drove the getaway car and acted as lookout as Nixon and Revels robbed the bank. Their car was later spotted near 81st Street North and West Street in Valley Center.
Law enforcement chased the car for several miles before the Johnson stopped on Sheridan Court, where all three fled on foot. Nixon's co-defendant Revels was sentenced to nearly 20 years in federal prison.
Adams received 140 months in prison. The Valley Center Police Department, the FBI, the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office, the Wichita Police Department, the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Park City Police Department, the Maize Police Department, the Kechi Police Department, the Haysville Police Department, the Colwich Police Department, the Andale Police Department, the Mount Hope Police Department and the State Parole Office all participated in the apprehension of the defendants and in the investigation into the robbery.
