      A 20-year-old Wyoming man has been sentenced after attempting to rob Farmers State Bank in Wallace last August.

      Drew Steier, of Evanston, Wyo., was sentenced on Monday to 18-36 months in prison after pleading no contest to the charge in exchange for a recommendation for a shorter sentence. Steier told the judge that he regretted what he did and was glad no one was injured.

      Authorities say Steier and his partner, 53-year-old Tracy Black, walked into the bank wearing a ski mask and wielding a BB gun.

      Police say Steier fled with his partner, 53-year-old Tracy Black, without any money and without injuring anyone.

      The men were captured near Imperial about an hour later.

      Black, also from Evanston, Wyo., was given the same sentence last month.
