WICHITA, KS—A Lyons, Kan., man has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank in Arlington, Kan., with a sawed-off shotgun, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Jacob W. Schrock, 27, Lyons, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. In his plea, he admitted that on Sept. 13, 2011, he robbed the Citizen’s Community Bank in Arlington. He walked into the bank about 10:45 a.m. carrying a sawed-off shotgun and wearing a cowboy hat, sunglasses, vest, and blue bandana covering his face.

Schrock was arrested less than half an hour later when a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper pulled him over on Salem Road near Highway 50 in Reno County.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 27. He faces a penalty of not less than 10 years and not more than life and a fine up to $250,000. Grissom commended the Kansas Highway Patrol, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch for their work on the case.
