Kansas City, Mo., man sentenced in Leawood bank robbery

A Kansas City, Mo., man was sentenced Monday to more than five years in federal prison for bank robbery, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.

Terry Lovelady, 58, Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced to 5.8 years. Lovelady pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas.

He admitted that on Aug. 24, 2016, he robbed the Central Bank of the Midwest at 4801 Town Center Drive in Leawood and fled in a getaway car driven by a co-defendant.

The robbers led police on a high-speed chase, running red lights and cutting off other drivers. Eventually, the getaway car jumped a curb, rolled down a hill and came to a stop in a parking lot at St. Joseph Medical Center in Missouri. The robbers fled the car on foot and were soon arrested.

Co-defendant Chad English, 43, Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced in May to 4.3 years.

Beall commended the FBI, the Leawood Police Department, the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Leon Patton for their work on the case.
