Three-year sentence for bank robbery

A South Lake Tahoe man was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday in El Dorado County Superior Court for robbing a South Lake Tahoe bank in December 1999.

Dean Listner, 45, was captured near Los Angeles in February. The FBI had identified Listner as their prime suspect after they matched his print to a thumbprint collected from a note he passed to a bank teller.

As part of a plea agreement, the 45-year-old admitted he robbed an El Dorado Savings Bank in the 3900 block of U.S. Highway 50. The bank has since been converted into a U.S. post office.

Law enforcement officials have not disclosed how much money Listner stole from the bank.
