SALT LAKE COUNTY -- A man who pleaded guilty to robbing a South Jordan credit union at gunpoint will spend almost five years in prison.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, a judge sentenced Curtis Brad Cordery Wednesday to 56 months behind bars for the July 2008 robbery. He was also ordered to pay more than $50,000 in restitution.

Cordery worked with Jeffrey Lyle Nay, a teller at the credit union, to plan the robbery. Nay was sentenced last year to 30 months in prison.

Police say on July 3, Cordery stormed the Goldenwest Credit Union at 3664 W. 10400 South wearing a mask and carrying a black BB gun that looked like a real semiautomatic weapon.

After taking the money, he took off in an employee's car.

Cordery's wife recognized him while watching surveillance video on the news and called police. Investigators tracked him down at Disneyland in California nine months after the crime.
