Man who used storm sewer for getaway sentenced for robbery

LINCOLN, Neb. – A bank robber who made his getaway through a Lincoln storm sewer has been given five to eight years in prison.

Online court records say 48-year-old Wade Winklepleck was sentenced Wednesday in Lancaster County District Court. He’d pleaded no contest after prosecutors lowered the robbery charge.

Prosecutors say he used a fake gun to rob a Union Bank branch in central Lincoln on Jan. 28 and fled the area through the storm sewer system.
