Robber caught by bank president gets 6 years

TROY, Mo. (AP) -- A bank robber who was caught at gunpoint by the president of the eastern Missouri bank has been sentenced to six years in prison.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the sentence was handed down Friday for 58-year-old Donald Ray Lee. He pleaded guilty last month to second-degree robbery.

Lee was wearing a Halloween mask when he robbed the People's Bank & Trust in Troy on Oct. 30. He demanded money from the teller and put his hand in his coat pocket, indicating he had a gun.

He didn't really have a weapon, but bank president David Thompson did.

Thompson grabbed his Colt .380 handgun and followed Lee o the parking lot. He held Lee at gunpoint until police arrived.

Lee had $4,779 of the bank's money.
