Wichita (WIBW) - A Wichita man will spend nine years in prison for robbing a bank.
46-year old Daryl McNeil was sentenced Wednesday to 108 months in prison.
McNeil pleaded guilty in June to one count of bank robbery with a dangerous weapon. The U.S. Attorney's Office says McNeil admitted to the Aug. 23, 2006, bank robbery at the Fidelity Bank, 3523 E. Harry in Wichita.
McNeil entered the bank and brandished an air pistol designed to look like an actual firearm, then, according to an affidavit, pointed the pistol at a teller and said, “Give me all your money, or you will die."
Prosecutors say a dye pack exploded in the stolen money as he left the bank, spewing red dye and tear gas. As he fled, he discarded some of the money, a pair of latex gloves and a do-rag he had been wearing on his head, which were stained with red dye and tear gas from the dye packs. Investigators used DNA to tie McNeil to some of the discarded items and the robbery scene.
