Man involved in Hy-Vee bomb threat sentenced to prison

A man who pleaded guilty to robbery and making a terrorist threat was sentenced to 17 years in prison on Monday.

Jeffrey York, 59, was accused of stealing from the Commerce Bank inside Hy-Vee on West Broadway last August. He apparently left a note with a teller saying he had a bomb. Authorities cleared the store, and put several nearby schools on lockdown.

A suspicious package found in York’s car was safely blown up.

On Monday, Judge Brouck Jacobs sentenced him to 10 years for armed robbery and 7 years for the threat.
