Robber Sentenced for Holding Up Three Banks
HAZLETON — A bank robber who wore a surgical mask to commit the crime was sentenced Thursday in Luzerne County.
Shawn Kelley of Hazleton held up three banks in the Hazleton area within a matter of days back in 2012.
Kelley was sentenced to just over eight years in prison.
At the sentencing in Wilkes-Barre, the defense said Kelley’s robbed the banks to sustain a heroin addiction.
