BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- A man involved in an armored car heist in Bismarck has been sentenced to two years and nine months in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Michael Link of Bismarck pleaded guilty to bank larceny. A judge also ordered link to pay more than $346,000 in restitution.

Link was the last of three suspects to be sentenced in the February 2010 crime.

Twenty-year-old Matthew Fiechtner of Bismarck and 26-year-old Nathan Tuenge of Mandan earlier pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank larceny. Fiechtner got three years of probation and Tuenge was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.

Authorities say Link worked for Alpha 6 Inc. and was driving the truck that Fiechtner and Tuenge took money from.
