SPRINGFIELD — A Sikeston man was sentenced in federal court Wednesday for robbing Lebanon’s Commerce Bank.
Larry Gene Enloe, 52, of Sikeston, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Greg Kays to five years and three months in federal prison without parole.
On Sept. 26, Enloe pleaded guilty to bank robbery. Enloe admitted that he stole $2,350 from Commerce Bank on Aug. 21.
According to court documents, Enloe entered Commerce Bank at 224 W. Commercial St. in Lebanon at about 3:15 p.m. on Aug. 21.
Enloe approached the teller counter and presented a bank robbery note, written on the back of a Walmart receipt, to the teller. The note read, “10 seconds. Put all your money in the bag now. No one gets hurt.”
The teller handed Enloe $2,350, and he put the cash in a white plastic bag and walked out of the bank.
While conducting a search of the area, Lebanon Police officers located Enloe near a local bus station. He was questioned and transported to the police station, where he was searched. Officers found $2,350 hidden in his socks.
According to court documents, Enloe had only been free from the Missouri Department of Corrections facility in Farmington a couple of days prior to the holdup.
