57 months in prison for getaway driver in Springetts bank robbery
A York man was sentenced to 57 months in prison for his role in a January 2016 armed bank robbery in Springettsbury Township.
Ryan Warnick, 37, drove a getaway vehicle for fellow Yorker Derek Bowman, 34, who robbed the East Market Street branch of PNC Bank at gunpoint on Jan. 9, 2016.
Bowman demanded money from the bank's teller, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, and escaped in Warnick's vehicle with about $3,000.
Bowman was arrested by Pennsylvania State Police the following day and was found to be in possession of money and heroin.
Springettsbury Township Police later found the shotgun used in the robbery in Warnick’s possession, the release states.
Warnick was sentenced to 57 months — just three months shy of five years — on Sept. 19 by U.S. District Court Judge William J. Caldwell.
The York Dispatch reported in April that Warnick faced up to 25 years in prison according to a plea agreement he signed with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Harrisburg.
Bowman received a 141-month prison sentence Feb. 15.
