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.
