Milwaukee man convicted in Iowa bank robbery

MAQUOKETA, Iowa (AP) — A Milwaukee man faces up to 25 years in prison after being convicted of robbing a bank in Iowa.

The Telegraph Herald in Dubuque says a Jackson County jury on Thursday convicted 31-year-old Jason Brown of first-degree robbery in the September 2010 holdup of the Maquoketa State Bank in Andrew.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 16.

Authorities say Brown and another man robbed the bank. The second man pulled a gun on the teller, Tina Lanning, and demanded money. Lanning testified during the trial that Brown held her arms above her head during the robbery. She was not injured.

About $44,000 was taken in the robbery. The money hasn’t been recovered, and the other robber hasn’t been identified.
