Toledo robber of Key Bank branch sentenced to prison


A Toledo man who robbed a Key Bank branch in East Toledo was sentenced today to 18 months in prison.

Dennis Thompson, 32, of 3389 Woodrow Blvd., also was ordered by Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Frederick McDonald to pay $800 in restitution to the bank.

Thompson, who pleaded guilty last month to robbery, walked into the bank, 324 Main St., on Nov. 28, handed the teller a note, and fled with $800. Judge McDonald noted that Thompson was “caught red-handed” after the hold-up when a dye pack placed with the cash exploded, leaving red dye on his hands.

Thompson told the judge he had a drug problem and needed help.
