An Ohio man charged with the 2010 robbery of Centennial Bank at 1815 E. Oak St. in Conway pleaded guilty Monday in Faulkner County Circuit Court.
Eric Kennedy, 36, of Hillsboro, Ohio, will serve 20 years in prison for stealing $4,000 from the bank in June 2010, Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland said.
Kennedy was arrested without incident just days after the robbery at the Economy Inn on Oak received a tip that the suspect was seen in an older model gray car. After discovering that Kennedy had already checked out of the Continental Inn, Conway police searched area motels and were advised by an employee of the Economy Inn that Kennedy was a registered guest.
Kennedy was booked on felony charges of aggravated assault, theft of property, terroristic threatening and theft by receiving.
