Man Charged With Double Bank Robbery Pleads Guilty
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) -- The man who twice robbed a Rochester bank in December has admitted to a federal bank robbery charge.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota says 36-year-old Ryan Liskow entered into a plea agreement on February 29th.
He was arrested on December 15th after a Rochester Police Officer driving back from a training session in the Twin Cities spotted Liskow driving on Highway 52 in a van that had been reported stolen by Liskow's father.
The case attracted international media attention because Liskow made his exit from the Sterling State Bank office in northwest Rochester while a reporter for a TV station was doing a live report from the bank about the robbery that occurred the previous day.
A sentencing hearing for Liskow, whose criminal record includes a previous bank robbery conviction, has not been scheduled.
