BARABOO, Wis. -

According to a report, United States Attorney John W. Vaudreuil said a Baraboo man was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to 27 months in prison for aiding in the June 6 robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank branch in Baraboo.

Chance D. Pagel, 32, was convicted of providing a BB gun, clothing and his car to a man who later used them to rob the bank.

Officials said no charges have been filed for the robbery itself, but according to an affidavit filed by the FBI, Pagel named his former boss, Andrew J. Hartman, 45, as the masked gunman who held up the bank and made off with more than $5,000.

According to Pagel, he shared in the proceeds of the robbery and assisted in disposing the clothes and handgun in Baraboo River after the robbery.

Law enforcement officers were able to recover the handgun from the river.
The investigation remains open.
