Longview Man Sentenced In Robberies

A Gregg County jury sentences an east Texas man to a long prison stay for a Longview bank robbery. Stealing money using a "fake bomb," robbing a convenience store and a fireworks stand has landed 49 year old "Jacky Glenn Sypert" in prison for 40 years. He was sentenced earlier today in a Longview courtroom.

Sypert used the fake bomb in the robbery of the Hibernia bank on Judson road July 5th. The same day, he also robbed an "E-Z mart." Just days before, he robbed the fireworks stand.
