SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A federal jury has convicted a Nebraska man of robbing the same bank in South Dakota twice in a year’s time.
Ferris Valentine was convicted of two counts of bank robbery Thursday in Sioux Falls.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in South Dakota says the 54-year-old Omaha man and a partner robbed the First National Bank in Sioux Falls in November 2016.
Valentine robbed the same bank the following November. DNA was taken from the first robbery scene in 2016.
A match to Valentine’s partner in 2018 led law enforcement to Valentine.
