Another Wyo. man makes Neb. plea deal

Posted: Friday, Mar 15th, 2013

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. ó A 20-year-old Wyoming man has pleaded no contest and been convicted of trying to rob a western Nebraska bank.

Drew Steier of Evanston faces sentencing on April 8. Prosecutors have agreed to recommend a sentence of 18 to 36 months in exchange for Steierís plea.

Authorities say Steier and 53-year-old Tracy Black tried to rob the Farmers State Bank in Wallace, Neb., in August. Investigators say Steier walked into the bank wearing a ski mask and wielding a BB gun. He fled without any money. Black was driving the getaway car.

The two men were arrested near Imperial, Neb., about an hour later.

Black, also from Evanston, also pleaded no contest and is scheduled to be sentenced on March 25.
