5.5 years for New Haven bank heist

A man who admitted to playing a role in an October 2011 bank robbery was sentenced to more than 5 1/2 years in prison this week.

Michael C. Bure, who was 27 when indicted in federal court this past April, received a 67-month prison sentence Wednesday on one count of armed bank robbery.

Bure admitted to robbing the New Haven PNC Bank branch but said he did so with another man at the time.

That man, 28-year-old Matthew Lester Vanschoick, has pleaded guilty to armed bank robbery but has yet to be sentenced.

According to court documents, Vanschoick went inside to rob the bank while Bure waited outside in the getaway car.
