Third Man Sentenced In KC Brinks Truck Robbery

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)- A 22-year-old Missouri man was sentenced to 13.5 years in prison for helping rob a Brinks crew who were filling an ATM at a Kansas City bank.

The Kansas City Star reported Monday that Gerald Jones of Raytown also was ordered to pay $76,649 in restitution after pleading guilty to three counts of armed robbery.

Twenty-two-year-old Deangelo Colston of Raytown was already sentenced to 14 years and three months, and 22-year-old Larry Platt of Grandview was sentenced to five months in prison.

Court documents say the three held up the two-man Brinks crew in August 2010 and stole $130,000 in $20 bills.

Jones and Colston also admitting robbing Hillcrest Bank in Overland Park, Kan., in July 2010 and a Buca di Beppo restaurant in Kansas City in August 2009.
