An Alaska man who robbed a credit union in North Idaho in July was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison followed by three years of probation.
Karl Erik Erickson, 33, of Palmer, Alaska, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Coeur d’Alene.
Erickson pleaded guilty to the robbery on Sept. 15. He admitted he went to Horizon Credit Union in Ponderay, Idaho, told the teller it was a robbery, demanded money and took $3,410 before fleeing.
Erickson was arrested three days later. He had one prior robbery conviction.
District Judge Stanley Bastian also ordered Erickson to pay back what he stole.
The case was investigated by Bonner County Sheriff’s Department, the Idaho State Police and the FBI.
