Stop or I'll Suck!

From the SF Chronicle:

Man gets 20 years for using vacuum attachment during robberies
Associated Press

MUNCIE, Ind. -- A man who pretended a vacuum cleaner attachment was a gun during two robberies last year has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Michael Shewman, 24, admitted to robbing a Village Pantry and Mutual Federal Savings Bank in July 2004, authorities said.

Delaware County Circuit Court Judge John Feick last week sentenced Shewman to two 20-year sentences, which will be served at the same time. Shewman had earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of armed robbery.

The Muncie man told Feick the robberies had excited him.

In 1999, Shewman was convicted of three robberies in Delaware, Kosciusko and Wabash counties, where he used a knife, authorities said.

His brother is a bartender here in Cincinnati and told me this story. I can't believe he would tell it to a stranger.
