Suspect in bank robberies pleads not guilty to other charges

KSN - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 12:56

LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) – A man suspected of bank robberies in five states has pleaded not guilty to unrelated charges in Nebraska.

Station KNOP reports that Richard Gathercole entered the pleas Monday in Dawson County District Court to two counts of possessing stolen firearms and one of theft or receiving stolen property. A trial starting date of Aug. 12 was set.

Authorities believe Gathercole is the man they call “the AK-47 bandit,” who’s robbed banks in California, Idaho, Iowa, Nebraska and Washington.

Nebraska court documents say Gathercole was arrested June 20 at a gas station near Lexington, Nebraska. A sheriff’s deputy had spotted a pickup truck there that Kansas authorities had reported stolen by a man who’d fired at but missed a state trooper.

Lexington is 198 miles west-southwest of Omaha.

KSN - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 12:27

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A man who has admitted he tried to set off what he thought was a bomb outside an Army post in Kansas to aid the Islamic State group is facing sentencing.

John Booker Jr., of Topeka, is scheduled to be sentenced Monday in federal court in Kansas City, Kansas. He pleaded guilty in February to trying to arm what he thought was a 1,000-pound (450-kilogram) bomb outside Fort Riley, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) west of Topeka.

The plea agreement recommended a sentence of 30 years on one charge and 20 years on a second charged, to be served at the same time.

Booker plotted the bombing with two contacts who were confidential FBI sources. He acknowledged telling one of the sources that he wanted to kill Americans and participate in jihad.

Pizza Hut delivery driver tased during robbery

KSN - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 12:05

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita police said a Pizza Hut delivery driver was tased while delivering pizza Sunday afternoon. It happened around 5:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of South Terrace.

Police said the 34-year-old victim was delivering pizza to a woman when he was approached by a suspect and tased in the neck. The suspect demanded money. The delivery driver was able to escape and received no serious injuries.

“The residence was a vacant residence, so more than likely this female was part of this corroborated plan,” said Charley Davidson, Wichita Police Department.

The suspect is approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall with a slender build. He was armed with a pink taser and had dreadlocks and stubble facial hair.

If you know anything about the crime, call Crime Stoppers at 267-2111.
