A Pickens man was sentenced for his role in a 2012 bank robbery on Tuesday.

Solicitor Walt Wilkins said 49-year-old Vincent Missouri was convicted by a Pickens County jury of robbery/entering a bank, depository or building with intent to steal, strong armed robbery and failure to stop for blue lights.

He was sentenced to 20 years in prison by Judge James Barber.

On June 18, 2012, Missouri entered the Bank of American on East Main Street in Pickens and handed the teller a note instructing her to put money in a bag, according to Wilkins. 

He then fled with more than $1,750 and disregarded officers attempting to stop him.

He was eventually captured while in possession of money taken from the bank.

According to Wilkins, he will have to serve 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
