MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 55-year-old Minneapolis man was sentenced to 30 months in prison in Minneapolis Federal Court on Thursday for robbing a St. Paul bank.
Michael Lewis Johnson was charged on April 20 with one count of bank robbery and pleaded guilty on June 16. He admitted to stealing $4,225 from the Wells Fargo Bank on the 2100 block of Ford Parkway in St. Paul in April.
According to court documents, Johnson walked into the bank at about 4 p.m. on April 5. He gave a bank teller a note that said “We’ve got a problem here, you’re being robbed.”
The note was written on a deposit slip and money was placed into a plastic shopping bag before he walked out of the bank. Johnson was identified by video surveillance in the area and arrested on April 6 at his residence.
